The installation of new windows seems like a small part of a remodel - but actually, is one of the best things you can do for your home. New windows can help you improve your home’s value, save on heating and AC costs, and even keep allergens out. There’s a wide variety of reasons that you should consider installing new windows to improve your home.

Most people replace their windows when they’re remodelling, focusing on the look of the place. New windows can invite brighter light - making for rooms look bigger. You can get windows with various designs or etchings, or you can focus on getting insulated glass that will last for ages. Old windows may begin to look dingy and attractive after a while. Replace them with new ones and you’ll see just what a big update it is! Your entire home will feel new with upgraded windows.

Here are five ways that replacing your windows with new ones can improve your home:

  1. Improve your home’s value: New windows can increase your house’s value by several thousand. When you’re ready to sell, newer windows make a huge difference in the end price, according to the 2020 Cost vs. Value Report. Virginia homeowners can expect to see nearly a 70% return on the cost of the project. 
  2. Become more energy efficient: Installing new windows that are better in quality helps seal your home, keeping the temperatures you need. In the winter they help keep the cold out so that your heating bills are lower, and in the summer they keep the hot air out. One of the easiest ways to have an energy-efficient home is to install new windows.
  3. Increase safety: Unfortunately, in cases of emergency, like robberies or natural disasters, new windows will hold up better. If there’s a break in, new, shiny, and sturdy looking windows may deter thieves from entering. Especially if they’re made from modern strong glass. The same goes for natural disasters. Newer windows are better at withstanding damage from flying debris - preventing shattered pieces of glass inside your home.
  4. Keep out dust and allergens: If your nose suffers in the spring or fall, new windows can help you alleviate some of that by keeping dust, pollen, and other allergens out. New windows are sealed better and made from stronger glass, so you can keep out all the things that make you sneeze.
  5. Noise pollution reduction:  Studies show that noise pollution is harmful to your health. Whether you live on a noisy city block or you’re simply sensitive, changing your windows can help. Newer windows are made to be thicker, or you can request models that are insulated, which will help reduce the noise level. It won’t block out everything, but it will be noticeably quieter.
