What Are the Benefits of Replacing Old Windows in Austin?

posted on April 12, 2022 in Austin

If you're thinking it's time to replace the windows in your Austin home, you're probably right. But, you also might be putting it off because of how big of an undertaking you think it'll be, both cost- and work-wise.

In this blog, we'll explore:

  • Why that window replacement needs to happen sooner rather than later;
  • Affordable replacement window options; and
  • Why having the right team behind your installation can make the process go as smooth as possible.

Signs That Your Windows Need to Be Replaced

If you're having trouble deciding whether or not you should replace your windows, here are some of the warning signals. If you find that your window is drooping, or if the frame is droopy rather than straight, you should consider replacing it. Other typical warning indicators include soft or malleable sills/frames, streaks or moisture buildup between the glass panes, windows that won't shut/open properly and locks that won't latch.

The most common issue with ancient windows is severe heat or cold pockets, as well as a draft while standing immediately in front of them. With Austin being prone to extreme weather and temperatures year-round, you don't want to put off replacing your windows — the last thing you want is cold winter air or scorching summer temps making their way into your home.

What to Look for in a Window Replacement

Because Austin can have such extreme temperatures, you should prioritize energy efficiency when replacing your windows. The ENERGY-STAR® ratings of the new windows you pick should be available from the provider you choose. This rating ensures that your window complies with specific energy-efficiency regulations.

Vinyl windows are an energy-efficient choice that may help you save money on heating and cooling. It's critical to have high-quality windows installed by professionals who know what they're doing. You may also inquire about the company's customized window choices, which include colors, hardware and designer glass.

The Advantage of Vinyl Replacement Windows

New vinyl windows may increase the energy efficiency of your home and assist in cutting your monthly energy costs, saving you money long-term. Premium vinyl replacement windows can also improve your home's security.

Replacement windows that are energy efficient enhance the overall climate of your house by keeping it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. UV protection is provided by energy-efficient replacement windows with a Low-E coating, which helps to prevent fading of your walls, carpet, flooring and furniture caused by the powerful Austin sun. Your home's exterior appeal and value can both benefit from new windows.

What's more, vinyl is one of the most low-maintenance, durable and affordable materials out there, which makes for windows that can withstand the dynamic weather Austin is susceptible to.
