When it comes to making updates to your Maryland home, you may wonder about adding new windows. Improving your home, whether for sale or simple convenience, is something that all homeowners must invest in – but windows are tricky because they often don’t offer the immediate visual difference that other changes can make. Rather, they offer many long-term, slow burn benefits that will show themselves over time. Today we’ll talk about a few of the many benefits that new, insulated windows can bring.
Better Indoor Temperature Regulation
If you have older windows which are poorly fitted, warped, or made from old, less well-kept glass, you may notice that you have a hard time regulating the temperature of your home. In the winter drafts allow too much cold air in while summer finds your air conditioning leaking out. When you switch to new, insulated windows, you’ll eliminate those drafts and make way for a far more comfortable space.
Because those above-mentioned drafts cause your HVAC and heating unit to need to work at a much higher power, you’re leaving yourself open significantly higher utility bills. Not only does this result in wasted electricity, but it adds significant stress and wear to your heating and cooling units. This means you’ll need more frequent maintenance and replacements, leading to much higher overall costs.
Reduce Chances Of Long Term Damage
Old windows that are drafty and improperly sealed can lead to several types of long term damage. If the frames are wood and have not been cared for, they can begin to rot attracting pests like termites which can ravage your entire home. Likewise, if water is allowed to enter via poor seals, condensation or etc. it can lead to severe water damage which puts the integrity of your whole home at risk.
