Any improvement you make to your home will give you a return on investment either from a financial perspective or how it improves the enjoyment of your home. Most people think of updating the kitchen or the bathrooms first when they consider an improvement that adds value to the home. However, new windows for your home shouldn’t be overlooked. Here are multiple ways new windows can help pay for themselves:
• Energy Savings- Heat loss because of inefficient windows drives up your heating and cooling costs more than you might think. The savings you’ll realize on your utility bills both in the summer and the winter can help you recoup the cost for your new home windows sooner than you might expect, especially if you choose quality, energy-efficient options that are installed properly.
• HVAC Preservation- If your air conditioning and heating equipment is running harder than it should because of drafty windows, it will need more repairs and earlier replacement than if you proceeded with efficient home windows.
• Adds Value to Home – When you sell your home, buyers will be more than happy to pay a bit extra for a home with new, energy-efficient home windows. While they won’t give you what you paid for the windows, when you combine the increase with the savings you’ve enjoyed over the years, you’ll find your home windows may have just paid for themselves.
