If you’re thinking about selling your property one day, you’re probably wondering which home improvements would help improve its marketability. Aside from new patio doors, consider replacing your old windows with energy-efficient ones. These units won’t only make your home more beautiful, but they can also help improve comfort and energy efficiency.
Read on to learn about different window features that attract home buyers.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Potential buyers who are looking to cut their heating and cooling costs are attracted to homes with better energy efficiency. Often, buyers are drawn to ENERGY STAR® certified windows and appliances.
Energy-efficient replacement windows can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 12 percent. These windows have an invisible glass coating, vacuum-sealed spaces with a gas fill, strong weatherstripping and durable frame materials. All these features can reduce heat transfer into your home.
Longevity and Ease of Maintenance
Windows aren’t something that you just replace every few years. Research says that homeowners usually only purchase windows once in their lifetime. This is one reason home buyers are interested in homes with durable and long-lasting windows. They also prefer windows that are low maintenance.
