When most people think about curb appeal, they only take into consideration things such as re-roofing, sidings and landscaping. Most of the times, windows, which are a central part of the appeal are forgotten. Besides the fact that windows add to the beauty of the home, it is important to note that at least 40 percent of the heat loss that occurs in the house is lost through doors and windows. The heat loss occurs when the windows are old and poorly sealed or when they are poorly installed. These are some of the reasons you should only consult Expert Window Installers for all your window fixing needs.
How windows cause energy loss
As mentioned, windows and doors are responsible for a lot of the heat loss that occurs in the homes. Normally, the heat loss depends on the type of windows installed in your home and how well insulated they are. For instance, if you bought an older house with single pane windows, the energy loss through the windows could be as much as 50 percent.
When heat is lost through the windows, the heating system has to work twice as hard to create the same amount of energy needed to keep the room at the thermostat set temperature. At the end of the month, you end up paying more in energy bills. The simpler solution to this problem would be installing newer and better windows. The ideal windows would be double-paned alternatives, which are better at heat insulation.
Window replacement and improved home resale value
Most people think that you only need to do re-roofing, siding job and landscaping to score more with the property valuation experts. However, research has shown that replacing old windows designs with newer designs that are energy efficient and appealing goes a long way in improving the resale value of your home. The fact that newer window designs will look more attractive also adds some points to the home resale value.
These are just a few of the benefits that you stand to gain when you allow Expert Window Installers to do a window installation or replacement job for you.
