Let the light in! Whether it’s time for a new look, you want more natural light, or your current windows aren’t holding up, installing new windows has several benefits. Here are a few benefits of replacing your windows, along with the two brands that we carry.

The Benefits

Increased energy efficiency

Older windows will have poorer insulation due to age, and in Minnesota, that means high energy bills in the winter. If you notice that you’re colder when sitting by a window, that means the cold air is coming in, which forces your furnace to work harder to keep the house warm.

Added home value

You’ll be happy to know that your investment will pay off! When potential buyers find out that the windows will need replacing soon, it can turn them away. If you’re planning to sell in the next couple of years, replace the windows now so you can also benefit from them—then, you’ll enjoy the return on investment even more.

Safety and security

If you have a window in your home that’s hard to open or gets stuck easily, it becomes a safety hazard. In the event of a fire, you may need to escape through a window, so they should all open and close seamlessly. In addition, new windows have updated locks, so you get some peace of mind when it comes to keeping your home safe.

Curb appeal

Your home’s appearance matters, and that includes the windows. Even if your siding hasn’t been updated in a while, new windows can give your home a totally new look.
