Unless you’re a Q-Exteriors employee the topic of new windows probably isn’t too exciting. Sure, we fawn over window product catalogs and love to talk triple-pane innovations, but we understand it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
You can probably think of ways you would prefer to spend your money, instead of investing it in new windows. But unless you live in a cave, windows are a part of your home and your life. And I’m certain you don’t live in a cave.
If you’re like most people you don’t give much thought to the windows in your home. Aside from cleaning, and picking out drapes, windows are self-sustaining. But, if the same windows have been in your home for more than 20 years, you might discover your windows are costing you money and adding to your discomfort.
Increase your home's value with new windows
Are you considering putting your home on the market? Given the current real estate climate in London, Ontario and the surrounding area, no one could fault you. But if you’re going to sell your home you’ll want to make it worth the trouble and get the highest possible price.
Having new windows installed is a great way to increase your home’s resale value. Real estate agents place special emphasis on recently installed windows. According to this CNBC article, installing new windows provides an 85% return on investment. If you invest $10,000 in new windows, your home will sell for $8,500 more.
Installing windows with a transferable warranty is an added bonus for potential home buyers.
Improved energy efficiency
Do you dread opening your energy bills? London, Ontario and the surrounding region enjoy some interesting weather. High humidity in the summer keeps A/C units running round the clock. Frigid winter temperatures mean your furnace doesn’t get a break. Combine our climate with Ontario’s record-setting cost of energy, and bills can be terrifying.
Installing energy efficient windows will improve your home’s energy consumption. How big of a difference depends on the climate you live in, the type of windows you’re replacing and other factors. On average the typical home will see a cost reduction of anywhere from $27 to $465 annually.
