Window Replacement Houston: Save Energy, Save Money
While most homeowners rarely think about it, professional window replacement should be at the top of the priority list for any home renovation project. Generally considered an overpriced and unnecessary luxury, the reality is that modern, energy-efficient windows can actually make you money in the long-term.
If you’re considering making aesthetic changes to your home, make sure that window replacements are part of the plan.
Upfront Cost vs Long-Term Gain
The main long-term benefit of investing in replacement windows is that, by reducing your other overheads, they will eventually pay for themselves. You might not notice it, but your old windows could be costing you hundreds of dollars every year. In summer, they retain so much heat from the sun that you’re forced to hike up the air con; in winter, the drafts mean more heating is required to keep you comfortable.
With modern window replacement in Houston, you can stop running high bills to compensate for your windows and start saving some real, hard cash.
Vinyl and fiberglass window frames are two of the most energy-efficient available. Combined with a gas-filled multi-pane window, you will notice an immediate change to the temperature balance in each room. This leads to reduced energy bills and huge savings over the course of the year.
Though we all hope it never happens, we should consider that around 30% of break-ins come through a main house window. If the frame is rotten, weak or run-down, a burglar could enter into your home without raising any alarm; with top-quality window replacements, the aluminium or fiberglass frame will help keep you, your family and your valuables safe from harm.
Low Maintenance Costs
As a rule, traditional windows and frames should be replaced every 20 years or so – similar to your roof. The old wooden frames allow drafts and can become unsightly, while the window panes themselves will have lost their luster over the years. However, even after a few short years, most of are forced to slap on an extra layer of paint to the frame and spend hours scrubbing the windows clean.
Why put ourselves through it?
Instead, choose brand new, custom-fitted window replacements: virtually zero upkeep and no chance of degradation for at least a few decades. Our windows are an essential part of any home window replacement project, and the effect they will have on your heating bills – as well as your home’s aesthetic – cannot be overstated.
