Get replacement windows in San Jose, CA this summer and bring your home a fresh new look, improved energy efficiency, and better security. Summer is an excellent time to replace all the windows in your home, because the weather is nice and people often refresh their houses inside and outside during summer months.
You may not think that you need to replace your windows yet. After all, there are plenty of other home projects that you’d like to tackle first. Maybe you can put off having new windows put in for another few years, and do some of the other things you’d like to do around the house now.
However, before you push replacing your home’s windows down the road, you should check them to make sure they are in good shape.
The first thing you want to check for is drafts coming into the house. If there are gaps in the window frame or sill, then you’re letting hot air into the house during the summer and cold air into the house during the winter. This will drive up your energy costs significantly, because your HVAC system will have to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature inside.
The second thing you’ll want to check is whether your windows are damaged. When window frames get warped, soft, or cracked, your windows will not operate efficiently nor will they operate correctly.
Older windows, especially single pane windows, are not very soundproof. If you can hear your neighbors’ conversation as if they were sitting in the house with you or every car that passes by sounds like your house is sitting in the middle of the road, then it’s time to think seriously about window replacements.
Replacement windows are an important part of maintaining your home. We often take windows for granted and we often don’t think about their role in the overall cost of our homes. Not only can old, poorly performing windows drive up power costs, but they can also cost in more intangible ways.
Increasing the curb appeal of your home is a significant factor in windows replacement. Whether you intend to stay in your home for a long time or you are thinking about selling it in the next several months or years, replacement windows can improve the curb appeal of your home within the neighborhood or to potential buyers.
Many home break-ins occur through windows. Older windows are less secure than new replacement windows, which feature stronger glass and better locking systems.
Having fully functional windows is another benefit of replacement windows. Not only will windows be easier to open and close (which will let you take advantage of nice days and nights to let fresh air flow throughout your home), but they will also be easier to clean. To clean older windows, you have to clean the inside from the inside of the house and then go outside to clean the outside of the windows. Most new replacement windows are designed to let you clean both sides of the window from inside the house, which is easier and safer.
Make replacement windows a priority this summer, and you reap the benefits for years to come.
