As winter approaches, it's important to take a look around your home and your entire property in order to prepare for the cold weather. If you aren't correctly preparing for the cold weather, you aren't just going to be uncomfortable, you are going to have some serious financial concerns, as well.
First, take a look at your home's windows. If your windows are old, they are likely causing your home's energy expenses to increase significantly. Having composite windows installed in your home can offer plenty of benefits.
Here are some of the main advantages of installing composite windows inside your home:
Style -- Honestly, composite replacement windows look incredible. Though this advantage might be a bit trivial, it's still nice to have a home that looks its best. Also, a better-looking home will actually increase its worth and resale value.
Save money -- Composite replacement windows will give you plenty of value in the long run. Though vinyl windows range in price between $200 and $700, a little less than composite, the enhanced energy performance composite materials provide will save you a significant amount of money on heating and cooling expenses over an extended period of time.
Prevent unwanted heat loss -- During the winter, the last thing you want is for all your home's warmth to escape through your windows. With the majority of traditional window stylings, this happens all the time. In fact, heat gain and heat loss through windows are responsible for between 25% and 30% of residential heating and cooling energy usage. Composite material windows can help keep all that important warm air inside your home. Additionally, composite replacement windows have a thermal performance up to 50% better than other products, as well as a 600% structural performance increase.
Durability -- Composite windows offer superior durability to wooden windows and other materials, as well. Composite is much less susceptible to contraction, expansion, warping, and weathering, making them less likely to weaken and develop air leakage over time.
