Below are some ways how new windows can improve your home.

More Natural Light

Is your home feeling cramped? Installing large windows may be a solution.Natural light has the advantage of making any room appear more spacious. An increase in exposure to natural window light is also believed to have several health benefits such as maintaining your circadian rhythm and improving your mood during the dreary winter months.

Energy Efficiency

Windows are more energy efficient now than they were 20 years ago. As a result, homeowners are enjoying more comfortable homes and lower energy bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it may be more cost-effective to replace your old windows with more energy efficient windows than trying to do costly repairs.

Less Drafts

Over time, windows and window frames can warp, creating gaps that allow air to pass through. When you have drafty windows, it can be hard to heat and cool your home effectively. If you notice that it’s significantly colder by the window, especially during the winter months, it may be time to consider replacement windows. At Weatherhead & Sons, we offer a generous window selection for you to choose from that will keep the cold winter air out of your home.

Improved Curb Appeal

While replacing windows can be an entirely practical decision, there are also homeowners who may be interested in window replacement to improve the style of their home. For example, architectural windows that are loyal to your home’s style or an accent stained-glass window can increase the value of your home and make a lasting impression on guests.

If you are planning on selling your home in the near future, a stained glass window can give your home the character and charm it needs to stand out from the competition.
