There are lots of good reasons to replace home windows but most people procrastinate until winter comes and cold air is pouring in through windows that old, damaged, broken or have poor seals.

With a winter like the one we’re having in Northwest Indiana, old windows can make winter seem more harsh and cost you more money. Old  inefficient windows or those that aren’t sealed well, can account for 30% or more of your home’s heat going right out the window! Literally.  With heating bills going up, that can translate high utility bills. Maybe it’s time to consider replacing your windows!

Buying new windows can be costly, but installing new windows should lower heating and a/c bills resulting in greater monthly utility savings. When it comes to home improvements, replacing windows should be at the top of the priority list. Window replacements can offer you a high return on investment in both savings heating and a/c bills, but also in the value that they add to your home.

How do you know when it’s time to replace old windows and start shopping for new energy efficient windows?
