When it comes to winter weather, we’re pretty lucky here in the greater Houston area. Sure, we sweat out the Texas summer but we can say “Thanks” every fall when friends and relatives up north are dreading another bad winter. Here in Texas however, we do see the thermometer fall a bit and the heating bills do rise, too. That makes this time of year a great time to consider replacement windows. Lower energy bills, staying comfortable and adding beauty and value to your home are the top three benefits of replacement windows.
- Lower Energy Bills-old, single pane windows allow heat to escape in the colder months, heat that you are paying for! And in summer? Those outrageous energy bills are often due to inefficient windows that allow the air-conditioned air to escape and the hot air from outside in. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies that show 30% of your home’s energy is allowed to escape due to old, inefficient windows. Live Oak’s replacement windows are designed to maximize energy efficiency.
- Comfort- it’s not only expensive when the heat you are paying for is literally going out your old, drafty windows, it makes your home feel colder. New energy efficient windows ensure that heat stays inside during winter and the cool air you’re paying for stays in to help keep you cool all summer.
- Beauty and Value-drafts and inefficient heating and cooling are big issues. But old windows that look ugly bring down the value of your home and well…look ugly. Replacement windows will give your home a gorgeous fresh look and increase its value; an important bonus for both resale and long-term investment value.
