With so many home improvement projects you can do, getting new windows may easily be forgotten. However, there are many functional and aesthetic benefits of new windows. So, why replace windows?

There are many reasons to replace windows in your home, and Asher Lasting Exteriors is here to ensure that your home stays energy-efficient, beautiful, and functional. Nine benefits of getting new windows include:

Asher Lasting Exteriors has several types of windows to fill your Wisconsin home with style and natural light.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Increasing your home’s energy efficiency is one of the biggest benefits of replacing windows. Drafty, old, or ill-made windows can lead to hundreds of dollars being lost every year in HVAC costs. By getting new windows, you’ll be able to save money on your energy bills, reduce the work your HVAC system has to do, and even reduce your home’s carbon footprint.

Reduced Noise Pollution

Not only can old windows cause issues with your home’s heating and cooling systems, but they can also let in too much noise. Single-paned windows are notorious for allowing too much sound to pass through, causing a headache for you and your family. Investing in new windows means you’ll be able to block noise from traffic, neighbors, sirens, and more with ease, leading to a more peaceful and relaxing environment.

Are new windows a good investment? Some designs, like black windows, are a great way to increase your home’s aesthetic. 

Increased Natural Light

If you’re looking for a way to increase the light in your home, new windows can help you accomplish this. Older windows are often dusty, dingy, and stained – so much so that even a good cleaning can’t provide the same benefits that new windows can. By investing in new windows, you can increase the natural light in your home, enhancing the overall mood and energy. Additionally, this can help decrease your energy bills, as you won’t have to rely on artificial light as much.

How much do new windows increase home value? Asher Lasting Exteriors can help install the perfect look for your home, working to increase your home’s value.

Increased Property Value And Curb Appeal

You may be wondering – will new windows increase home value? Not only will new windows enhance the aesthetics of your home, but they can also increase how much your home is worth, both by highlighting its curb appeal and the increased energy savings. This can help your home stand out if you’re trying to sell your home and give you a return on investment.

Ease of Use and Maintenance

We all know that older windows can easily become stuck, leading to increased frustration and issues with use. Additionally, maintaining these older windows is often difficult. Investing in new windows can give you the peace of mind that they will be easy to both use and maintain for years to come.

Increased Durability And Longevity

Modern windows are built to last longer and withstand harsh environments or weather conditions better than older models. Due to newer materials and construction techniques, along with perfected craftsmanship, investing in new windows means that your home will be able to enjoy increased light and energy efficiency for decades.

Modernized Style

New windows can drastically improve the look and feel of your home. Newer styles, such as black windows or specialty-crafted designs, can help modernize your home to bring it into the new century. Additionally, frame materials, such as Asher’s Fibrex composite, allow your home to have increased glass coverage for a better view, enhancing the outdoors of your space as well.

Looking to weatherproof your home? Here are some of the most effective ways to ensure your home stays protected from the elements.

Resistance To Weather Elements

Older windows often have cracks or may not latch properly, leading to potential damage from wind, rain, and snow. Weather-resistant features in new windows, such as improved seals, water-repellant treatments, and increasingly durable materials, ensure that your home stays protected from the weather, no matter what season it is.

Condensation Reduction

Lastly, new windows can also reduce issues with condensation build-up between panes, which can lead to mold growth, water damage, and other issues down the line. Investing in new windows means that you’ll be able to benefit from improved glazing technology and better insulation, both of which can help maintain consistent indoor temperatures, reducing – or even eliminating – condensation.
