Windows are often overlooked but vital part of your home. They let you see the world outside and enjoy its beauty while staying in the warmth (or coolness) of your home. What happens when they no longer serve their purpose and you need to look at replacing them or repairing them? What happens when they start letting in the drafts and chill of the cold winter wind? You replace them with brand new, energy-efficient vinyl windows!
Why vinyl windows you might be wondering? Well, here are just a few of the many benefits of swapping out your old drafty windows for vinyl.
They’ll reduce your bills. Who doesn’t want that? By keeping the cold out in the winter and the heat in the summer, you’ll enjoy the benefits of a lower energy bill.
They are maintenance-free. While your busy fixing up other things around your house, you won’t have to worry about your windows. A quick wash now and then to remove dirt and build-up, and your windows will be around for years to come.
Vinyl windows are affordable. We all need to keep money in our wallets, not only do they save you money over the long run, but currently they are one of the most cost-effective ways to upgrade to new windows.
They also come in many different styles and colours, making it easier for you to find ones that fit your taste and look great in your home.
They are recyclable. We all need to do our part to protect our environment, and by choosing a window that can be recycled after you are done with it, you are doing your little part.
Vinyl windows offer better thermal protection from the elements than traditional wooden frames or other types of windows on the market. More efficient windows make for better savings.
This may not matter to you if you don’t intend to keep your home for many years or decades into the future, but they are also extremely durable, which means your new windows could very well outlast your time spent living in the home!
Speaking of that, they are also a great value adder when it comes time to sell your home. A home with cold, drafty windows will have your potential buyer seeing dollar signs adding up, but with vinyl windows already in the home, they will take comfort in knowing a big bill isn’t coming for them soon.
Many governments, both on the federal and provincial levels, offer rebates on higher efficiency products. Vinyl windows can very well fall within their programs. This way, not only are you getting a great price on your new windows, but you’re also saving money monthly on bills and getting cashback in your pocket for doing it.
As you can see, there is a wide range of benefits, not just those listed, to choosing vinyl windows for your window replacement project and many reasons why you’ll be happy that you did.
