Everyone wants to save money. Even though we’re at the very beginning of the summer here in the South Shore, it won’t be long before the cold winter winds return. That means it’s time to carry out the home improvements that will make your home more comfortable next winter & help you save money.
#1 on the list of money saving home improvements is having replacement windows installed. The amount of money you’ll save will vary based on your home. Generally, the older and leakier your current windows are, the more savings you’ll realize by upgrading your windows.
That’s why, if you can’t afford to replace all of the windows in your home at once, it makes sense to start with the windows that are in the worst condition first. If you know that one room in particularly is chilly and uncomfortable, that’s a good candidate for replacement windows.
One thing we encounter quite a bit in the South Shore is leaky older picture windows, bay windows, or other specialty windows. Many of these windows were originally installed in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Window technology has advanced tremendously since then. When you work with your local replacement window company, they can have replacement windows custom made to exactly fit the spaces occupied by your original window – with a better seal, better quality glass, and insulating features that keep your home warmer and quieter.
Any step you take to make your home more energy efficient will help you save money. Replacement windows make for a significant upgrade in a home’s overall energy efficiency. That’s because windows and doors represent the most vulnerable part of the home’s envelope. Improving the windows means more warmed air stays in, which means your home heating system runs less and you save money.
