Investing in superior-quality replacement windows helps improve your home’s curb appeal, weather protection and energy efficiency. Additionally, new windows can help in selling your home. With the right window features, you can attract more prospective buyers to your property and facilitate a sale faster.
If you are looking to install one or more new windows in your home, be sure to choose windows with the following features:
1. Energy Efficiency
Many people who buy homes today are looking for ways to save money on energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint. This is why they choose homes with ENERGY STAR®-certified windows, which allow homeowners to save up to 12% on heating and cooling costs. It’s a good idea to replace your old windows with ENERGY STAR windows before you sell your home. They usually have two or three panes of glass with a low-emissivity glass coating and robust weatherstripping to ensure energy efficiency.
2. Easy Indoor-Outdoor Living
Connecting indoor and outdoor living spaces seamlessly is something that buyers find appealing. This is especially true for homeowners who love having family members, friends and guests over on special occasions. To facilitate the smooth movement in and out of your open concept plan home, consider installing sliding patio doors to go with your replacement windows because they give the impression of more space.
Windows are known for enhancing your home’s aesthetic appeal, but did you know that they also play a role in its indoor comfort? You want your home to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer, so it pays to invest in dual-paned windows and patio doors with low-emissivity coatings and inert gas fill in between the panes to give more stable indoor temperatures throughout the year.
4. Minimal Maintenance
Low-maintenance windows are ideal for homeowners who have limited time to clean their windows. When searching for replacement window units, look for the ones with frames and sashes that can be cleaned with water and mild detergent. Check whether the glass panes have the appropriate coatings to prevent water spots. If you are picking double-hung or casement windows, consider those with tilt-in or removable sashes or hinges as well.
Investing in window replacement before selling a home is always a wise decision. Regardless of when you decide to install them, new windows offer the above advantages. However, in order to maximize your purchase and boost your home’s resale value, you will need to hire a reputable window installation company.
