5 Great Reasons to Upgrade Your Windows

For any home owner, a house is a never ending project as we continually work to get everything the way we like it. From laying new carpets or flooring, adding a few licks of paint or even building an extension, there are hundreds of elements that we can change to improve our home. However, one of the most beneficial home improvements you could make in the long term is to upgrade your windows.
There are many benefits of investing in new double glazing:


PVCu windows with double glazing are low maintenance

If you have traditional timber windows, you will no doubt understand that they take quite a lot of maintenance to ensure that they remain energy efficient and look good. In contrast, PVCu windows are extremely low maintenance. They will last for a number of years and can simply be wiped down with warm soapy water – there’s no need for expensive paint or varnish.


Double glazing can dramatically balance temperature in your home

By providing much improved insulation, PVCu double glazed windows can help to keep the heat of your home much more balanced. This allows you to keep your home warm in the colder weather, and cool in the summer months.


New windows can save you money

Whilst the cost to upgrade your windows may be quite large, in the long term you can stand to save a lot of money. Not only will PVCu windows last for a long time, but the maintenance costs will be extremely low. Due to the improved insulation, with less heat escaping, you will be able to save money on your energy bills as you will not have to turn the heating up as high. Over time, the savings from energy bills could be quite large.


New windows will help keep out outside noises

If your home is on a busy road, new windows could be a very worthwhile investment. The improved insulation provided by PVCu windows is not just in terms of temperature, new windows could also help to cut out much more outside noise. If you are kept awake by traffic, loud people on the street, or even distracted by the noise of nearby industry, new windows could be a huge benefit.


New windows = improved security

New PVCu windows with double glazing are much sturdier than single pane glass. As a result, you can feel much more confident in the security and safety of your home.
