You may be considering having new windows fitted in your home. Steel replacement windows may have even taken your fancy. What was it that drew you to them? The elegant look, the longevity of the material? Whatever it was that initially sparked your intrigue, did you know that steel replacement windows can improve the energy efficiency of your home? That’s sure to make you fall in love with them even more!
Now we’re all aware that windows can be a massive drain on energy and heat in your home, especially if they’re in need of an update due to cracks and wear and tear. Let’s start with how getting replacement windows could save you some cash. Did you know that heat gain and heat loss through windows are responsible for 25%–30% of residential heating and cooling energy use? This really adds up over the years and replacing your windows will reduce the risk of heat loss from these areas which will drive down this figure. This, in turn, will reduce cost to yourself as you use less energy to heat your home in the future.
Following closely behind the money that steel replacement windows could save you now by making your home more energy efficient: the return investment you’re going to see when you sell. Although new windows may not seem as glamorous as a new en-suite or kitchen. Smart home buyers know what to look for in terms of important features. And up to date windows are definitely on their list of things to look out for. So not only will this make your home more attractive to prospective buyers, but it will also raise the value of your home. Updating anything in your home is likely to raise the value when it comes to selling. And replacing your windows is unlike a new kitchen or bathroom because it not only looks good and gets a return investment but that it actually saves you money while living at the property.
This is probably all sounding pretty good so far, and it gets better! Not only do steel replacement windows impact your own energy use and related expenditure, but also the world around us. Carbon neutral homes seem to be the future when it comes to new builds. However, not many people can say they’re there yet. Until an alternative for fossil fuel is found, cutting our energy use is the best foot forward. So by replacing your windows your home will become more energy efficient, and this will then reduce your ‘carbon footprint’. Basically you’ll be contributing less to the problem of climate change!
