Top 5 reasons to replace your windows in Edmonton
Replacing windows doesn’t just have to happen after one has been broken. There are, in fact, many reasons replacement windows are a good idea for your Edmonton home.
At All-West Glass, we’d like to let you know about five great reasons that you should look into getting new windows:
- Save money on energy bills
Glass windows are a great feature to any home. They let light in and let you look out onto your property. At the same time, because they’re less well insulated than your walls, they’re also places where heat exchange happens more rapidly between the interior and exterior of your home. In the winter that means that the hot air leaks outside and in the summer the heat enters more quickly at windows. Luckily, science is constantly improving how we make glass windows. Now, we have windows that can limit the heat transfer through your glass, keeping hot air in or out as you like, and saving you money all year in heating and cooling.
- Protect your property from UV light damage
Heat isn’t the only issue when it comes to the sun’s rays entering your home. Ultraviolet radiation can also cause damage. Carpets, pictures, and upholstery can all quickly lose their bright colours after long exposure to UV radiation, for instance. New windows can help block UV radiation and keep your possessions looking better for longer.
- Improve security
Modern windows aren’t just getting better at keeping unwanted heat and radiation out of our homes. They’re also getting better at keeping intruders out. New processes of creating glass make it much stronger than it used to be. Depending on your needs, security glass in your replacement windows might give you peace of mind in your Edmonton home.
- Curb appeal
Of course, the safety of your family and property always comes first. Once you’ve taken care of that, however, you also have to live in your home when there are no problems to deal with. Why not come home to a beautiful house? Replacement windows can help beautify your family home in Edmonton.
- Add value to your home
Each of the last four reasons all contribute to another, essential reason to keep your home, including your windows, in the best possible condition. Security and beauty are two essential elements to any assessment of your property’s value. These estimates, of course, affect your ability to sell your home or get any loans with your home as collateral. New Windows will save you money and increase your home’s value for months and years to come.
