Replacing your windows can be a big decision, but here are just some of the benefits of doing so.

Why should you replace your windows?

Published on 30 April 2020

When thinking about making any improvements to your home, you may not instantly think of upgrading your windows, but new windows could be one of the best investments you make.


Windows are not something that most of us spend any real time thinking about day-to-day, so why should you consider replacing them?


If you want to make improvements to your home, but don’t have a huge budget set aside, replacing your windows could be a cost-effective, relatively quick improvement which you will still see the benefits from for years to come.


What benefits will I see from upgrading my windows?


Having new windows can instantly change the look of your home, but it can also have an impact on the amount of energy you use, can make your home safer, which in turn can have an impact on your home insurance, as well as making you and your family feel safe and secure.


Upgrade the look and feel of your home

Replacing your windows is a relatively modest investment which can drastically improve the aesthetic appeal of your home.


New windows can instantly improve the curb appeal of your home and potentially add value. With so many styles and colours now available, you are certainly going to find something that suits your home. Whether you choose uPVC windows which can last up to 35 years and require no maintenance – just a clean when needed – or you choose aluminium windows which last up to 40 years and come in over 200 colours, the choice is yours.


Once your new windows are fitted, you will instantly see the improvements they bring to your home. And, as an added bonus, your home will be more appealing to prospective buyers if you are looking to sell in the future.


Keeping the heat in

Have you noticed condensation building up on your windows? This is a sure sign that your windows might need an upgrade. High quality double-glazed windows will reduce the heat loss from your home and mean that your home is far more energy efficient than it was before.


Replacing your windows could save you over £100 per year on your energy bills according to Energy Saving Trust. And of course, you will reduce your carbon-footprint which is great for our environment.


Reduce your home insurance

Home insurance providers can offer lower premiums for those who have high quality locking systems on their windows. uPVC windows generally come with a three-point locking system as standard – which makes them more difficult for any prospective break-ins.


As well as potentially reducing your home insurance premiums, you will also provide a much safer and secure home for you and your family – you can’t put a price on peace of mind.
