Reasons Why You Should Replace Your Windows
Posted on December 06, 2016 in Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha and Lincoln
There are a number of reasons to replace your windows, here are just a few:
Air is leaking in and out of your windows or doors, causing hot and cold drafts.
There is unsightly fogging between the panes of glass.
Solution: New windows and doors with high-performance insulating glass technology helps eliminate drafts and will help keep the glass from conducting heat or cold — making your home more comfortable and energy efficient year-round.
High Energy Bills
Your old single-pane windows are not energy-efficient, making your furnace and air conditioner work harder.
Solution: Reduce heating and cooling costs by replacing your windows and doors with Low-E (Low-Emissivity) insulating, double- or triple-pane glass. For maximum energy savings, purchase ENERGY STAR® qualified products.
You want to prevent your furniture, carpet and window treatments from being damaged by the sun’s fading rays.
Solution: Replacement windows and doors with Low-E (low-emissivity) glass coatings reflect the sun’s UV rays away from your home, to help protect your furniture, drapes and carpets from fade damage.
No Emergency Escape Route
Windows and doors that don’t open easily or are painted or nailed shut are a serious safety issue — they may prevent you from escaping your home during a fire when seconds count.
Solution: New windows and doors will glide open and shut easily and lock securely — giving you a dependable escape route and more peace of mind.
They are Just Plain Ugly!
