Install New Windows This Summer
Warm weather makes summer a great time for window installation in the Sioux Falls, SD area. While new windows will make your home look better, they provide many other advantages as well. Today we’d like to talk about the benefits of having Restoration RX install quality windows in your home.
Did you know old windows may be causing your energy bills to rise? According to Penn State College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, “Windows lose more heat per square foot of area in winter and gain more heat in summer than any other surface in the home.” Choosing tinted glass prevents the sunlight from heating your home’s interior, and windows with a greater R value will reduce heat loss in winter. Quality window replacements provide an excellent return on investment, between 70 and 80 percent in some cases, simply based on energy savings. Plus, you can claim federal tax credits when you choose qualified energy-efficient windows. Restoration RX would be happy to discuss which windows meet these requirements.
Worn windows are difficult to open and close, which can waste precious time when trying to escape from a fire or other catastrophe. They can also pose a danger to young children who might fall out when leaning against an unstable window screen or frame. High quality windows now have locks that are harder to breech. In addition, security screens and privacy film make it more difficult for intruders to see into your home.
If you’re planning on window replacement in your Sioux Falls area home, you might want to consider installing vinyl windows. Unless you like manual labor, that is. You will no longer have to spend time scraping, sealing or painting your widows every few years, plus water and insect damage will be a thing of the past!
Increased Home Value
Replacing your home’s windows before you put it on the market is a feature that adds to the asking price. Not only will you home look better and your new windows function correctly, buyers will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing their new home has high quality windows that will save on energy costs. Plus, they won’t be having to hire a window installation contractor soon after moving in.
