One of the main reasons why homeowners put off window replacement is that they think they’re spending too much money on it. However, our team of experts say that getting replacement windows can actually save you some cash in the long run. Here’s a quick rundown on the biggest reasons why you may want to spend now to start saving.
One of the biggest things that most homeowners tend to miss when talking about saving money on old windows is that old windows tend to have a higher maintenance cost. This is because windows become more vulnerable to wear and tear. Coatings have to be reapplied and damages have to be fixed. With new windows, you get new sashes and frames that are made of more resilient materials so you save on maintenance.
Fixing an old window is usually a short-term solution. Once you fix one part of it, another weathered part is bound to fail soon. To make things worse, problems that happen on very old windows tend to be much worse because all of its parts are already deteriorating. At that point, you’re better off spending on new windows.
With electricity bills constantly going up, the demand for energy-efficient windows is also at an all-time high. Old windows might not have the features needed to keep up with today’s energy demands. On the other hand, new windows have frames with better thermal resistance and features like Low-E glass that help reduce the amount of heat that enters through the windows, resulting in significant savings on your electric bill.
