Did you know that new windows can actually improve your everyday life, and even make you happier? From more natural light and energy savings to beauty and function, it’s beneficial to replace your existing windows while adding value to your lifestyle and home. Check out these five ways in which new windows can make you happy.
1. Increased Natural Sunlight
Your existing windows may stick, have condensation between the panes, or feature large frames, grids or other obstructions that keep you from experiencing full sunlight potential. Today’s windows are manufactured with light, minimally-invasive frames that give you more surface area and, as a result, more light that will stream through.
The more light you get, the less electricity you use, which in turn lowers your energy bills. Plus, you get more Vitamin D, which we all need more of during these dark, cold New England winters! Sunlight and Vitamin D can have a big impact on how we feel, and can even influence our moods. Studies have proven that natural light is vital for our health and well-being. In fact, an inadequate amount of light during the day for long periods of time can negatively affect overall disposition.
2. More Warmth
Naturally, heat flows out of your home during winter and into your home in the summer. If you have properly insulated windows, heat flow is reduced, which means you use up less energy and keep more cash in your wallet. You will also feel comfortable throughout all seasons due to the regulation of the interior temperature. It’s got a lot to do with your windows’ R-value; the higher this number is, the greater your insulating power is.
3. Pride in Homeownership
An exterior home improvement project is a great way to display pride in home ownership. When you replace the old, dated windows throughout your home, you make an immediate and dramatic impact on the curb appeal, property value and beauty of your home. This pride of ownership shows through your whole property and indeed the entire neighborhood.
4. Save Money
If you have drafty windows that aren’t properly sealed, energy is leaking out – at great cost to you. With new windows, you’re keeping more energy in and are saving money on energy bills in the process. Fact is, inefficient windows may lead you to spend as much as 40 percent more on your gas and electric bill every month. Saving money certainly makes you smile more!
5. Increase Home Safety
The #1 way intruders enter homes is through a window. You increase the chances of this happening when you continue to allow faulty windows to exist in your home. When you replace your windows with new, secure ones featuring strong locks, you deter unwanted guests. A safe home is a happy home.
