Older homes often have windows that leak and let in cold air during the winter and heat in the warm months. Single-pane windows were the standard for many years, but window manufacturers discovered that double pane windows made to be weather resistant were a better choice. Damaged, ill-fitting, or single-pane windows should be replaced with the new windows to save energy and minimize heating and cooling bills. The new windows are easier to open and close and clean. New windows lead to more comfortable rooms with no cold drafts. Residential Window Installers in St Paul can help.
Why Replace Old Windows?
Homeowners around America live in older homes with leaky windows or damaged windows. They delay repairs because of the costs involved. But, this is a false saving. Those old windows are letting cold air in and precious heat out to increase heating bills all winter. Often, replacing the old damaged, single pane windows pays for itself with reduced heating bills. The house looks better and is more comfortable. Also, a house with newer double-pane windows in good condition is worth more when it is time to sell.
When a family moves into an existing home or decides to upgrade the home they are in, it is time to examine each window and determine its viability and energy efficiency. Some homes have both new windows and old windows. The homeowner can continue to replace old windows a few at a time. They can also get a home improvement loan or financing through a good exterior renovation contractor such as Builders & Remodelers Inc.
