In a typical home, around 25 to 30 percent of the heat and cool air from your HVAC system is lost through the windows. Here in Kansas, we experience hot summers and cold winters, so making sure your windows are in excellent condition can help keep your home more comfortable and energy-efficient. But do you know about the many other benefits you’ll enjoy from new windows?
Let’s discuss some of the reasons why you should replace old windows and what the advantages are.
Increases home value
Your renovation to-do list may have a lot of items competing for a piece of the budget, but few will bring the return on investment realized by installing new windows. You can expect to recoup almost 75 percent of the cost of the project when it’s time to resell your home.
Aesthetic value is important, but new windows also add energy efficiency, a much-desired feature in today’s housing market.
Replacing windows is also a substantial undertaking. Prospective buyers will be put off if they think the home needs major renovation work. It may be a seller’s market for most of Kansas right now, but if you happen to be selling when it’s a buyer’s market later, a new window installation is an effective way to stand out from the competition and may help you sell faster and meet your asking price.
