“With all of the upheaval 2020 brought our way, we’re very interested in making our home more pleasant and comfortable,” Renee said. “I’d never spent so much time at home during the winter before. Now that I know how drafty our home really is, it’s time to make a change.”
Energy experts are quick to point out that up to 40% of a home’s heat can be lost through leaky, inefficient windows. “And where that heat is getting out the cold air is getting in,” Renee explained. “I can’t tell you how many times I went over to crank up the thermostat because a draft made me shiver. Very expensive!”
As a replacement glass service in Whitman, we can report a lot of local interest in replacement windows and doors. There are a few reasons for this enthusiasm for replacement windows, including:
People want to improve the appearance of their home.
If your home has had the same windows since the Seventies, odds are the house looks a little dated. Window technology and style has evolved with the times. One of the reasons people in Whitman are opting for replacement windows is that they want their home to look as nice as the other homes in the neighborhood.
People want to improve the comfort of their home.
Cold drafts in winter and hot breezes in summer – leaky windows can make your home uncomfortable. The best replacement windows protect your home from the elements while keeping warmed or cooled air indoors. The result – a more comfortable living environment. Best of all, a home that’s consistently free from drafts and moisture penetration is healthier for the people and pets who live there.
People want to save money on their home heating costs.
“You hear all kinds of ridiculous stories about how much money having replacement windows installed saves on the electric bill, so I went to an unimpeachable source – my Mother,” Donna said with a laugh. “And she showed me that there was a real difference in her bills before and after having the replacement windows installed. It wasn’t a huge savings one time, it was a steady savings that went on and on, month after month.”
