As a homeowner, you've probably thought about replacing your old windows, or having new ones installed in a dark room, but you've resisted doing so for a variety of reasons. Now is the time to think about finally having new windows installed in your home – here's why:
Take Advantage of Tax Credits
If you choose to have new windows installed that are Energy Star rated, you may be able to receive tax credits to help offset your investment costs. You can claim a percentage of your investment costs for any Energy Star windows you install, whether replacing old windows or installing brand new ones.
Make sure that any window you decide to have installed has an Energy Star seal on it and complies with the official Energy Star standards. Your service provider can help you narrow your options down to only those that qualify for the energy savings tax credit.
Enhance Your Home's Energy Efficiency
Chances are that you've been considering replacing your windows because the ones currently installed in your home are old and worn. By installing new windows, you'll get rid of the cracks, old broken seals, and frame leaks that have been affecting your home, and you'll enjoy better overall energy efficiency.
Your new windows will be optimally sealed and the glass won't have any chips or cracks, which will help make easy work of keeping your indoor temperatures comfortable throughout the year without wearing out your HVAC system. You may even find that you don't have to use your air conditioner and heater as often as the seasons pass, which could save you some money on your power costs when all is said and done.
Improve Your Property's Curb Appeal
Installing new windows offers the perfect opportunity to improve your property's curb appeal. The new scratch-free windows will give your home a newer look, and you'll be able to install new frames of a different color and design than you currently have to create an entirely new vibe for your property. You can even customize the look and feel of your home by having the new windows tinted with insulation film. The film will add depth to your new look while protecting the floors and furniture in your home from harmful ultraviolet rays.
