Are your windows winter-ready? If they aren’t, you could not only let more cold air into your home this winter but spend more on heating expenses than you should. If your windows haven’t been replaced in many years, or are not as energy-efficient as they could be, now is the time to replace them. When you replace your windows before winter, you can start benefiting from the following positive consequences of installing new windows. Contact the team at T&G Builders today to schedule your window update – your family will thank you once winter arrives.
Eliminate Energy Waste and Heating Expenses
Replacing your windows is one of the best things you can do to make your home more energy-efficient. Old or damaged windows with inferior seals and cracks create air leaks. These leaks may not be noticeable in the warmer months, but you will notice them once those freezing temperatures arrive.
As you lose air through those cracks or seals, your home heating system has to work harder to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. This is how your old windows cost you money, as your heating system must run almost constantly to maintain your comfort.
By installing new windows with T&G Builders, you will eliminate drafts near your windows and ensure that the windows are crack-free and sealed correctly. By eliminating air leaks, you can keep warm air inside your home. This saves you money and prolongs the lifespan of your heating system.
It’s Easier to Replace Windows Before Winter Arrives
If you wait until winter to realize that you need window replacements, you may be rushing to get the job done. No rushed home renovation tasks are completed as well as they could be. By installing your new windows before winter and frigid temperatures arrive, you have time to select the best windows and have them installed with care.
Remove Old and Fragile Windows
Old windows are more prone to breaking during winter. Freezing temperatures make the glass more brittle, and old frames can warp with the changes in temperature and moisture. Small cracks can therefore form or worsen during winter, leaving your home even more susceptible to cold drafts.
Old Windows Are Vulnerable to Mold and Mildew
Old windows have poor seals, which means that moisture from rain, snow, and ice can get in your windows. This, along with condensation buildup, can cause mold or mildew growth on those old windows. When you replace your windows before winter, you avoid this problem and reduce the chance of exposing your family to mold and mildew.
Increases Your Home’s Appearance
Worn-out windows make your home look shabby and out of date. Because windows are one of the primary design features of your home exterior, an update makes a huge difference. When you replace your windows before winter, you get to enjoy not only increased warmth and energy efficiency, but you have new beautiful windows you can highlight with string lights this December.
