Three Interesting Facts You Didn’t Know About Your Windows

Your home’s windows provide light, ventilation, warmth, and – ideally – protection from outside. Many homeowners don’t realize it may be time for window replacement, even if your windows appear to be fine. New windows and window treatments can reduce energy costs, improve comfort, and make for a happier home.

Window Replacement Should Happen Every 20 Years

Many homeowners worry about window replacement only if a window breaks. However, there is such a thing as window life expectancy. Most manufacturers recommend you replace your windows after about 20 years. After this time, they begin to fail – get painted shut, cause a draft, or have panes that collect condensation. If you don’t replace windows on time, you’ll spend much more in energy costs.

Window Energy Ratings Count

EnergyStar windows meet certain Environmental Protection Agency energy-efficiency guidelines. Replacing old outdated windows with EnergyStar windows can significantly lower your energy bills and make your home more ecofriendly. Energy-efficient windows may also meet tax credit requirements to save you even more money. Learn more about window energy ratings to make an informed decision about your EnergyStar window replacement.

Your Window Replacement Installer Matters

When you trust a professional installer to handle your window replacement, you know the job will be done right. Professional installers replace your windows properly the first time, so you don’t have to worry about wasting money or energy. A professional will help you choose from different styles and types of windows to find the windows that are the best for your home’s functionality and curb appeal. Contact HB Home Services to get a free quote today.
