5 Reasons To Upgrade Your Windows

by Jessica Amey

If you’re thinking of ways to upgrade your home, new windows could be the best option you have. Upgrading the windows in your Dorset home can offer you excellent value for money, delivering a great range of benefits. As well as making your home look good, it can also make it warmer, lower your energy bills, reduce noise pollution and make your home more secure. New windows are a fantastic investment for your home and will last for many years. If you’re unsure about whether installing new casement windows is the right choice for you, here are some of the top reasons to do

Reduce your energy bills
Old windows can cause problems for your home’s insulation. Single glazed windows, in particular, don’t offer the protection that double glazing has, making your home less insulated and less energy efficient. By installing new windows, you can improve the insulation of your home so that the heat doesn’t escape, and the cold doesn’t get in. That means your heating system won’t have to work so hard to keep your home warm. Ultimately, you can save money on your heating bills.

Get rid of chilly draughts
In addition to reducing your heating bills, upgrading your windows will prevent cold air from getting into your home. Old windows can have some draughts and cold spots around them, making it difficult to keep your home warm. You might even be able to feel the cold draught coming from around your windows when you’re standing near them. You could just reseal around your windows, but even this may not be enough for older windows.

Improve soundproofing
If you have noticed that you can clearly hear what’s happening outside your home, it could be because of your windows. What’s more, it might mean that people can hear you when they walk past your home too. Poor soundproofing can make it unpleasant to live in your home but getting new casement windows could greatly reduce noise pollution. You can live a more peaceful life with less noise coming into your home from outdoors.

More security
Security is another key consideration for your windows. If your windows are old and damaged, it could be easier for people to break in. Older windows could break more easily in storms too, or maybe from a stray football, leaving you with broken panes. Brand new windows can improve
security with stronger glass and secure locks so that you can keep your home safe. Whether you’re at home or you’re out and about, you can feel confident that your home is secure. You can also install a privacy window film like those you can get from Purlfrost to conceal the insides of your home from prying eyes.

A better looking home
Of course, new windows will also make your home look better. Old windows can sometimes be charming, but they usually start to deteriorate before long. They can make your home look scruffy and like it hasn’t been cared for. If you want your home to look great both inside and outside, new
windows will give you the look you desire.

Upgrade your windows and see all of these excellent benefits for your home and your life.
