New Year is the time to make a difference. As they say, what you do in the month of January sets the tone for the rest of the year. It’s time for new opportunities and changes. May it be as simple as a haircut or as transformative as a home renovation.
Windows play a big part in your home but the average homeowner can be clueless as to when to replace them. Knowing the exact time to replace your windows can be tricky but here is a guide to when to replace your windows:
Fix damaged or rotten windows
Damaged or rotten windows are the most obvious reason to replace your windows. Did you know that fog between panes of glass signals seal failure? Make sure to check your windows for damage because it is a clear indication that you need to replace your windows.
Improve window operation
Having a hard time opening or closing your window and missing hardware indicates a problem with the window operation. This can be crucial, especially in the event of a fire or other natural disasters. Andersen windows have smooth control operators and even an optional motorized operator that is both convenient and secure for you and your family.
Help lower heating and cooling bills
In the long run, having new windows with better insulation will save you electricity and provide all-over comfort to your home. Replacing your old windows with Andersen’s dual-pane glass will block twice the amount of solar heat as a single pane glass and downsize your air conditioning system.
Make maintenance easier
We all know how busy the year gets. Not everyone has the time to always clean the windows especially if you’re a parent juggling work and taking care of kids. Andersen Windows’ High-Performance Low-E4 Glass has an invisible titanium dioxide coating that loosens dirt from glass and can be washed away by rain.
Rethink windows and the role they play in your home. They may seem trivial, but an increase in number or expansion of the size of your window opening can allow a lot more natural light in the room and brighten up your home. Did you know that natural light has direct benefits to your health and mood? Maybe the best way to start 2020 is to let the light shine through. 🙂
Boost curb appeal
Sometimes there really isn’t a problem but replacing windows just improves curb appeal. Andersen Windows, being the premium quality in its industry, can upgrade the value of your house if ever you’re trying to lure in some buyers.
