Boston is one of the most expensive real estate markets in the country. Once you’ve invested in owning property here, you quickly learn to do whatever you can to keep costs under control. One smart strategy is to reduce home heating and cooling costs by replacing older, leaky windows with modern energy efficient replacement windows.
When choosing replacement windows for your Boston home, there are three factors to keep in mind. The first is the look of the windows. We live in an appearance based society, and the value of our property is determined in part by how nice our homes look. Replacement windows are available in a variety of styles designed to enhance your home’s appearance. Choose from multiple grid options, as well as exterior finish colors choices that can add elegance to your exterior and boost curb appeal.
Pricing matters. Every home owner has a budget, and no one wants to spend every dollar they have on replacement windows. That being said, you don’t want to be too cheap. The replacement windows available at home improvement stores are by design crafted to satisfy the majority of installation needs. A better choice is replacement windows that are manufactured for your home’s exact specifications. This results in much less air penetration, which means fewer chilly drafts in your home and much less warm air sneaking out. Did you know that energy efficiency experts have found that up to 40% of a home’s energy can be lost through leaky windows and doors?
Finally, consider energy efficiency. There are various tax breaks available for home owners who upgrade their homes with Energy Star rated replacement windows. You’ll want to consult with your financial advisor for full details. Anyone interested in having a green or LEED certified home in Boston will need energy efficient replacement windows installed.
