Window Replacement & Installation
Window manufacturers and window companies have done a great job telling you that you need new windows. “All of your energy is pouring out of your windows.” The truth is, this may be the case. Windows are one of the many areas that you lose energy in your home. However, because windows cost so much to replace ($15-$20k on the average home) they are not always the most cost-effective way to save energy. However, in some cases, installing new windows can offer some amazing benefits.
Some of the benefits of replacing your old windows with new ones in Denver include:
Energy Costs and Savings
Installing new, energy-efficient windows can reduce your costs associated with heating and cooling your home throughout all of the seasons we encounter in Colorado. In colder times of the year, windows that are not energy efficient can be a source of unwanted heat loss, discomfort, and condensation. However, in recent years, windows have transformed and have garnered new technologies that enable a home to have lower heat loss, less leaking air, and warmer window surfaces. All of this improves the overall comfort of your home. If you are unsure about the performance of your windows in your home, you may want to consider a home energy audit.
Lowering Your HVAC Costs
Installing new windows not only reduces your heating and cooling bills every year, but it also allows you to reduce your “peak” heating and cooling loads, therefore reducing the amount of time you need to run the units at any given time.
Improve Your Homes Comfort
You might be experiencing that your old windows seem very cold to the touch. This can cause uncomfortable drafts as the air that exists near the window cools and sinks to the floor of your home. A similar situation occurs during the Colorado summers when strong, direct sunlight can beam through your windows onto people and furniture causing a hot, and uncomfortable inside environment.
Unwanted condensation occurs when the interior temperature of the glass drops below the dew point outside. Condensation can also be caused by the window’s frame or glaze if they are poor at performing in certain climates. Replacing your old windows with high-performance, new windows can create warmer glass in your house’s interior. Having warmer interior glass will reduce frost and condensation on your windows during the cold Colorado winters.
Increased Lighting and Better Views
Windows in Colorado give us two very important things, good views, and natural light. Sadly, windows can also be a source of solar heat gain during certain times of the year. Replacing old windows with new ones can allow the perfect amount of natural light into your home. New, energy-efficient windows give you a chance to enjoy views of our beautiful state without too much tint or having to rely heavily on shades.
Reduce Fading Inside Your Home
Old windows may allow too much light into your home causing materials such as carpet, fabrics, artwork, and interior paint to fade over time. New windows will keep your home aesthetically pleasing for years to come.
