There are many good reasons to replace the windows in your home if they’re old, damaged or not very energy efficient. If you want to reduce your utility bills, add to your home’s value and be more comfortable, new windows can do all of this for you. Replacement windows also adds a new sparkle to your home, which you’ll notice every time you look out one of your new windows! Replacing windows, however, can be a costly and time-consuming endeavor, so you want to be sure you know exactly what you’re getting into before you begin.
The cost will change depending on what glass you choose to use, whether you use triple pane glass or glass filled with argon gas. But if the window frames are old and perhaps damaged, you should really take the plunge and replace everything, as it won’t do you much good to have brand new windows if there are cracks in the frames.
Sometimes you can receive tax credits for using specific energy efficient windows. To take advantage of this, just examine the tax laws in your locale along with making inquires into the windows that meet the criteria; furthermore your utility bill will be more economical. In the U.S., look for windows that are approved by the Energy Star program. As long as you’re thinking in this way, you can also get tax credits for taking other measures that insulate your house, such as energy efficient doors and insulation. This may facilitate saving on your taxes plus on your monthly electric bills.
If you’re replacing your windows or hiring someone to do it, there will naturally be some sort of warranty attached to the job and materials -make sure you understand this ahead of time. For example, if you’re getting both windows and frames, the length of the warranty may be different for these two components. You have to be sure to read all the fine print with such a warranty, and if you don’t understand something, ask for clarification. The warranty is an important way to protect your investment, so it’s essential that it gives you thorough coverage when it comes to materials and/or workmanship.
