WHY YOU SHOULD REPLACE YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS BEFORE WINTER

 

CUT DOWN ON YOUR HEATING COSTS AND ENERGY WASTE

One of the best ways to make sure your home more energy efficient is by replacing your old windows and doors. Older or damaged windows and doors often have cracks and poor seals, which cause leaks that, are more obvious in the winter, with cold air coming in.

During the colder months, this will require your heating system to work harder and for longer to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, causing your heating bills to soar.

New energy-efficient windows will also regulate the indoor air temperature of your home. Low-e coatings on both, our double and triple-glazed windows allow warm solar heat in during the cold months and reduce heat loss through the windows.

OLD WINDOWS ARE WEAK AGAINST THE COLD WINTER WEATHER

Old windows are far more likely to break during the colder weather; freezing temperatures can cause older frames to warp due to moisture build up and temperature fluctuations- causing the glass to become brittle. Small pre-existing cracks in old windows can worsen in winter and let in a draft or become a serious hazard. The build-up of moisture is especially worse in winter due to the amount of snow, ice and rain. Older windows can have a build-up of condensation, causing mould, which affects the air quality in your home.

IMRPOVE YOUR HOME’S APPEARANCE

Boost the value of your home and improve your property’s curb appeal by installing new windows and doors. By replacing old and tired-looking windows, not only improves the exterior appearance of your home but also installing new windows in time for the winter will eliminate any build-up of condensation or fogging inside your windows, allowing your view to always be perfectly clear.

BE PREPARED BEFORE A COLD WINTER

Planning and installing for your new windows and doors before the hit of the winter weather, will mean you can have your perfect windows fitted without any stress. Rushing to have your windows designed and installed last minute, when the winter weather is already upon you, can mean you may overlook essential details for your window design.

Despite our fitting team always being as efficient as they can be, whilst undergoing the job, there are small temporary openings, which inevitably let in some of that cold winter air. Avoid any potential winter weather delays and replace your windows and doors before winter hits!
