High-quality windows are a great investment for your home. Replacing old, leaky windows with new, energy-efficient ones will ensure your house stays protected against the harsh elements. With energy-efficient windows, your HVAC system doesn’t need to work as hard, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs.
Read on to find out why spring is an ideal season to invest in window replacement.
Why You Should Replace Your Windows This Spring
New windows don’t just protect your home from bad weather–they’ll also boost your home’s protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. At Renewal by Andersen®, we offer windows with High-Performance™ Low E4® SmartSun™ glass, which blocks 95 percent of UV rays. This feature helps protect your furnishings and decor from fading and damage. When you choose us for your new windows, you can enjoy expansive outdoor views without having to worry about the damaging effects of the sun.
Increased Curb Appeal
New windows can give your home more personality and style. Replacing your outdated windows is a great way to improve your curb appeal. Make sure that the style and color of your new specialty windows complement your home’s design and the rest of your exterior. Renewal by Andersen windows are available in a wide range of colors, styles, finishes and hardware options.
Many homeowners don’t realize how much energy loss occurs due to old windows. Wasted energy means wasted money. You can save a significant amount of money on your monthly energy costs by replacing single-pane windows with multi-pane, energy-efficient ones. Multi-pane windows can help keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. These windows contain gas like argon and krypton to prevent outside air from entering and conditioned air from escaping.
You can experience discomfort when outside air enters your home. It can also increase your energy costs. After the window replacement, you’ll immediately notice a difference in your home’s comfort. Double-pane windows can also block noise better, meaning you’ll have a more peaceful living space.
Window Replacement Preparation Tips
The more prepared you are for your window replacement, the less likely it is that you’ll encounter delays. Make sure your home is ready before the installers arrive. Trim nearby trees and shrubs that could get in the way of your contractor. Clean the areas around your windows because dust and pollen from dirty surfaces can mix with caulk and cause issues in summer.
Remove window treatment, furniture and decor near your windows. There shouldn’t be anything hanging from the window frame. The same goes for outdoor furnishings. Store valuable and fragile items in a safe place. Give installers instructions on the areas where they are allowed and which bathrooms they can use.
Window replacement can generate a lot of dust. Before the installation begins, cover your furniture with drop cloths or tarps for protection and easier cleanup. Don’t let children or pets near the job site. If you have a security system, make sure to turn it off before the installation starts.
