Are you hoping to be warm and snug inside your home this winter?
Unfortunately, if your windows and doors are not up to par, you’re not going to have a pleasant season. As much as 20% of a home’s heat can be lost through poorly fitted or poor quality windows and doors. This is a cause for concern for us all, but especially for those of us who are slightly older or a little less financially stable.
The reasons for getting your windows and doors upgraded to meet modern standards are endless. Well-fitted modern windows and doors save money by making your home more efficient, protect the environment by reducing your carbon footprint from heating your home, improve your home’s security from unwanted guests such as burglars and look absolutely stunning!
Reasons For Changing Your Windows And Doors
The reasons for upgrading are as vast as the benefits, so there’s not one single reason or making the change.
If any of the below resonate with you, then it’s definitely time for you to consider getting replacements before it’s too late!
- High Heating Bills – If you feel that you’re paying a premium to heat your home, despite not using your heater any more than you think is normal, the chances are high that you’re losing too much heat. Your existing windows and doors are likely one of the reasons for this, so it may be time to switch so that you can enjoy a little more financial stability.
- Worried About The Environment – It’s a fact that the global temperature is rising, and this is a risk to us all. If you are concerned, as you rightly should be, then there are measure that you can take to reduce your carbon footprint and to help save our planet.
One of these is to make sure that your home is as efficient as possible. This means minimising your gas and electricity usage. One of the largest factors in achieving reduced carbon emissions from your home is by ensuring that your windows and doors are fitted correctly and are made to modern standards.
Home Security Worries
High-quality windows and doors are one of the best deterrents from burglary in this day and age. Softwood doors and single pained windows are ridiculously easy to break into, meaning that if your house has them, you can easily become a target.
Especially during the winter – with dark nights and Christmas approaching, opportunistic theft is at an all time high during the holiday season.
Improving The Style And Value Of Your Home
It’s no mystery that old windows and doors often look a little worn. Over the years they have been battered by the weather – the summer sun bleaches, the rain moistens and rots and the cold weather exasperates gaps and cracks – and the longer they have been in place, the more weather-worn your windows and doors will be.
Not only does this often spoil to aesthetics of your home, it also devalues it!
Modern replacement windows and doors are proven to stand the test of time. Available in a large range of styles and colours to fit any taste, so by upgrading now, you are sure to add thousands to the value of your home whilst improving the overall look and feel of it.
