Investing in your home is an investment in yourself – you spend so much time in your living space that you deserve high-quality home fixtures, and that includes your windows. For many homeowners, the need to purchase replacement windows is quite low on their to-do lists. Frankly, they don’t see the need to replace windows that don’t have glaringly apparent issues with them. Deciding when to upgrade your windows is a choice that you will need to make on your own; there are multiple reasons why you should invest in replacement windows.
Boost to Security
Most importantly, new windows are an efficient way to bolster security measures to your home. The safety of your home and your family comes first and foremost, living in a home that provides you with reassurance and relief, knowing you are not a risk for home break-ins. Old and cracked windows provide little-to-no protection from outside forces; chipped and cracked windows that are left unrepaired may worsen over time. In times of emergency, such as a house fire, you would want to be sure that your windows open and close efficiently.
Hydro bills in Ontario are well-documented as one of the priciest bills that homeowners must pay off each month. Especially now, in the winter, your gas bills may skyrocket as you overuse your HVAC unit to provide your home with heat. To keep your home, a sustained & comfortable temperature, you will need to use a lot of power and energy. Unfortunately, much of the energy loss that occurs in your home is through small little cracks that are often found in and around your windows. Purchasing new windows that are installed by a professional, are a great way to save energy and reduce the amount of money you’re spending on hydro.
Improved Resale Value
Finding ways to add value to your home is important, especially in today’s housing market. Investing in new windows is a surefire way to boost your home’s resale value and enhance your curb appeal. Not only would prospective homebuyers not need to replace their windows for 20+ years, but their home will possess energy-efficient windows that will have them saving money on their hydro bills for years to come. Whether you plan on moving or not, upgrading to new windows to boost your home’s value is a savvy move that will have you prepared for any scenario.
