The Benefits of Having your Windows Replaced

There are probably more interesting ways to spend your home improvement money – on a sleek new kitchen or a luxurious new bathroom, for example. However, there are not a lot of improvements that you can do that will yield as many benefits as replacing your windows. eieihome spoke to Clera Windows & Doors about the benefits of new windows.

Save in energy costs

Regardless of where you live, some utilities will go to cooling and heating. On average it costs Canadian homeowners approximately $1200 a year to heat a home. Of that, industry standards indicate that about 25%, or $300, is due to heat loss through windows, if the windows are standard double paned units. “By replacing drafty, old windows with energy efficient windows a homeowner can save almost 60% of their energy costs, or $180 a year,” says Clera Windows & Doors.

New frames prevent heat and moisture leakage

If the window frame or seal is damaged or worn out, it may not be very effective at protecting your home from moisture. Rainwater or snow melt may enter your home and introduce problems to the structure. The moisture may even promote the growth of mould, which can be harmful to your health.

Curb appeal is everything

A common way to upgrade older houses without extensive remodelling is to update your home’s facade. Replacement projects will give you more added value than remodeling projects, according to Remodeling Magazine. Fortunately for homeowners, these types of projects are also the least expensive and add to the home’s curb appeal. Consider replacing the garage door, siding, the front door and windows. “The average return on investment for replacing garage doors, siding, front doors and windows is almost 72%,” says Clera Windows & Doors.
