If you’ve heard that purchasing double-pane (or even triple-pane) windows can be a bit on the pricey side in comparison to other standard windows, that would be true; however, with the amount of money that you will save on your electricity along with all of the other benefits that come along with having them, trust us, it will be an investment that will be well worth the upfront costs. So take out a moment to check out our Top Five reasons for why you should get energy efficient windows below:
Why choose energy efficient windows?
It significantly lowers your energy costs.
As we’ve already mentioned, the best reason to get energy efficient windows is that they will significantly reduce your energy costs by as much as 30 percent. Being that the double-panes provide your home with extra insulation, it helps to keep the rooms in your house at the temperature you set inside of it without the need to dramatically adjust the thermostat based on what the outdoor weather is like.
It keeps your furniture and flooring from fading.
Here’s something that you might not have ever thought about before: Did you know that an overexposure to light, over time, can cause your upholstery, wood and even vinyl flooring to fade? This is just one more reason to get energy efficient windows because they are made in such a way that they actually help to filter the sun’s light rays before they enter into your house.
It reduces the amount of condensation that could come on your windows.
When it’s extremely cold outside, it’s not uncommon to see condensation on your window panes. The challenge is that when it turns into an excessive amount, that makes your home vulnerable to mold and mildew attacks. Since energy efficient windows don’t lose heat, this makes the accumulation of condensation less of an issue.
It makes your house feel more comfortable.
Another reason to consider window replacement is that it helps to make the rooms in your house feel more comfortable. That’s because if you’ve currently been having issues with drafts inside of your home, the reason may be because your windows and doors are insufficiently sealed. Once you put in some energy efficient windows though, we’re confident in the fact that they will reduce (if not totally remove) the draft issue and you can enjoy your home feeling whatever setting your thermostat says.
It raises the property value of your home.
As people are becoming more aware of just how important it is to be “green”, they are making all kinds of eco-friendly home improvements. Well, did you know that by adding energy efficient windows, not only do you automatically raise the value of your home, but it can also make you eligible for some tax credits too?
