5 Signs It’s Time For New Windows

Windows are the eyes of your home, letting in natural light, fresh air, and a beautiful view of the outdoors. However, like many features of your home they’re subject to wear and tear. That means eventually you will need to replace your windows. Uncomfortable drafts, foggy glass, and hard to use windows are just a few signs that it might be time for new windows.  Still not sure if it’s time for a window replacement? Central Window Sales is here to help you decide if it’s worth the investment. In this article, we'll explore five reasons why new windows can significantly improve your home's comfort, safety, and overall value.

It’s Time For New Windows if you want to:

1. Save Big on Energy Bills

Drafty windows will suck cool air right out of your home, and the money right out of your wallet.   This forces your HVAC system into overdrive to compensate and leads to higher energy bills. New windows are designed to be energy efficient and keep the temperature inside your home consistent. At Central Window Sales we offer a variety of high-performance windows featuring:

Double- or triple-paned glass: Create an insulating barrier, reduce temperature transfer between the indoors and outdoors.

Low-emissivity (Low-E) coatings: An invisible coating that reflects solar heat in the summer and retains interior heat in the winter, keeping your home comfortable year-round.

Inert gas fills: Argon or Krypton gas filling between window panes improves insulation. 

By upgrading to energy-efficient windows you can expect to see a significant improvement on your energy bill.  In fact, The Department of Energy states that homeowners can save an average of $126 - $465 a year by replacing single-pane windows. As you can imagine, those savings add up quickly, and your investment in new windows will end up paying for itself. 

2. Make Your Home More Comfortable

Old windows can sabotage your home's comfort level. Drafty windows create humidity issues and hot spots in your home, making it difficult to maintain a consistent temperature. Not to mention builder grade windows offer little to no soundproofing. That means traffic and neighborhood noise intrudes on your peace and quiet. And think, if you can hear everything that’s going on outside your home, those outside your home can hear what’s going on inside!

It’s time for new windows with upgraded features that can dramatically improve your home's comfort.  Multi-paned windows offer superior insulation, reduce drafts, help maintain a consistent temperature inside your home while offering superior soundproofing. Your house is your castle, treat it to new windows. We’d love to help you get started with a free quote from one of our window experts. 

3. Increase Home Value and Curb Appeal

The right windows can make a world of difference in your home's curb appeal. Outdated, worn out windows can ruin your home's exterior appearance but modern windows can boost its elegance and appeal, giving your home a look you (and your neighbors) will love.

Yet, the benefits go beyond aesthetics. New windows are a huge selling point for potential buyers. In fact, studies show that homes with new windows sell faster and for a higher price!  So, if you're considering selling your home in the future, replacing your windows is an investment that you will see returns on. 

4. Improve Home Security

When a burglar is scoping out potential targets, they are sizing up how easy your home will be to get into. Windows represent a potential entry point for burglars. So, old windows with suspect locks or cheap frames are an easy target. Therefore, modern windows with advanced security features are a serious deterrent for burglars.  Some of these features include:

Heavy-duty locks: Multi-point locking systems increase the difficulty level for intruders. Impact-resistant glass: Designed to withstand brute force and strong impacts. 

Security glazing: Special films allow the window to resist shattering even if your window breaks.

By upgrading your windows to ones with more security features, you can give your family and yourself peace of mind knowing you are better protected.

5. Reduce Maintenance 

Older windows often require maintenance, such as new hardware, painting, and re-caulking.  However, these tasks can be time-consuming, expensive and act more like a bandaid rather than a lasting fix. New windows built with high-quality materials are designed for long-lasting performance and low-maintenance operation. They are typically easier to clean, require less repainting, and have a longer lifespan.
