The Benefits of New Windows in Addition to Energy Efficiency
Are you considering a vinyl or wood window installation for your home? With the right product, you can see a significant difference in your monthly energy expenditures. But you should also know that having new windows also provides many other benefits beyond increased energy efficiency. Homecraft Inc. shares some of the best ones below:
Easier Cleaning and Maintenance
Older windows are not just inefficient in retaining indoor heat; they are also tedious to maintain. Cleaning the glass panes and removing the water stains on old windows is a chore that could take several hours depending on the number of windows installed at home. With a modern window replacement, you can be sure that they’re easy to clean even if they’re done monthly. Today’s windows are also designed to withstand the harshness of any weather regardless of the local climate and stay in top condition, as long as you maintain regular care and maintenance!
Improved Home Security/Safety
Some windows can be difficult to operate after constant use over time. Whether they won’t open/close easily or they’re painted shut can become a safety hazard especially during emergencies such as a fire or an earthquake. But by having new fiberglass or vinyl windows installed, you won’t just benefit from better ease of operation. Modern windows also offer better protection and security options such as sensors and updated locks.
Your HVAC System Lasts Longer
Since newer windows can retain the indoor temperatures longer, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home warm and cozy. Naturally, this means paying lower monthly energy bills, but this also helps extend your HVAC system’s expected lifespan. Since your HVAC doesn’t have to work hard to maintain good indoor air quality, it won’t wear out easily. This reduces the need for repairs, but you’ll still need to follow regular maintenance to keep the warranty intact!

Converting Your Window Into a Patio Door: What to Expect
Are you planning to convert an existing window opening into a patio door? It might sound easy to do on your own, but it’s more complicated than you think. This is simply because there are a lot of things involved when converting a window into a patio, such as acquiring a building permit and hiring a capable contractor for the job.
Why You Should Get New Windows This Winter Season
The winter season can be almost unbearable if your home isn’t properly winterized. Your home should be able to retain indoor heat generated by your HVAC equipment with the help of insulation along with sealed windows and doors. But if you have old and inefficient windows, you can be certain that they won’t be effective in reducing thermal transfer. That means your heating system will have to work harder to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures while consuming more energy in the process.
