Your windows play a big role not just in improving the look of your home’s frontage, but also in regulating the comfort levels of your living space. But what exactly is the benefit of timely window replacement, and are there risks to not replacing your windows on time? Renewal by Andersen® of Portland discusses this further.
The Risks of Windows in Disrepair
There’s a very real risk in leaving your windows in disrepair. Worn-out windows can negatively affect your home’s ventilation, energy and comfort levels on top of being a very real security risk. Damaged glass is also a safety issue as you’ll never know when the next wind might shatter your window’s old glass.
You Avoid Higher Energy Costs
Timely window replacement saves you from the hassle of higher energy bills. A worn-out window doesn’t do its job well in controlling the temperature of your home or providing a thermal barrier for when the heat starts to pick up.
This risk is very real this summer. If you leave your windows in disrepair, you’ll spend more time cooling your home with the air conditioning, and that means higher energy bills for you.
Keeping Up Appearance
Having your window repaired in a timely manner allows you to keep up your home’s appearance and restore the original look of your living spaces. Remember: Your windows play a role in home aesthetics. So, when you leave them in disrepair, you’re unknowingly lowering your home’s value.
