If your home has older windows, you may have heard the rumor that replacement windows in Citrus Heights, CA can save you money. But is that really true? Is it just a marketing tactic to get you to make the investment? Or does it actually come through as reality? It’s great for marketing, yes, but that’s because new windows really can save you a lot of money—no joke! Here are a few ways in which you will see savings once your new windows are installed.
The Immediate Energy Bills
Energy bills are something you might dread when you have older windows. You never know how big they’ll be or how much they have grown since last month. Right after you put your new windows in, though, your energy bills will drop right away.
The Future Energy Bills
Not only will you see a difference in your energy bills immediately after installation, but the bills will drop low and then stay low for the long haul. You can enjoy those low bills for years to come, paying yourself back for the initial investment or using those savings in other ways.
The Higher Home Value
You might want to stay in your home for a long time, but eventually, you’ll likely sell it and move on. When that time comes, your house will be worth more because of the replacement windows. You can recuperate up to 80% of your initial investment in that home value since it will be higher. The rest of the money, you likely will have gotten back in energy bills over time. You may even recuperate the entire cost of the windows and then some.
The Lack Of Maintenance
Old wood windows take attention. You have to paint them every year or two and that takes time and money for materials. If you don’t have the time, perhaps you hired someone to do it and that cost even more. Once you put in new, vinyl windows, those costs go away. You don’t have to paint any more so there are no supplies to buy and no labor to pay for. Plus, since everything’s new, there won’t be any repairs to worry about and cost you, either.
These are just a few of the ways your new windows will save you money. They could also do things like protect your home from storms and intruders, saving you even more.
