Are Replacement Windows The Right Choice For Older Homes?
Do you have an older home that isn’t quite as comfortable or as energy efficient as it once was? If you’ve updated your insulation and your home comfort equipment but your home still feels drafty, it might be time to look at your windows. There is no denying that windows in older homes reflect the home’s character and are a part of the home’s identity and story. But today, getting vinyl replacement windows that perfectly complement your older home’s style is much easier than you think!
Below are three reasons why replacement windows are ideal for your older home.
Vinyl replacement windows help your home become more energy efficient
At New York Sash our windows are manufactured with energy efficiency in mind. Whether you choose double pane or triple pane, you’ll find that new vinyl replacement windows keep your utility bills in check year round. Our vinyl replacement windows feature LowE with Argon insulating glass and have foam injected in both the window and sash frame to further increase the energy efficiency of the window. Our windows also meet stringent industry standards for insulation, structural strength and resistance to the elements.
Vinyl replacement windows can make your home more comfortable
If the windows you currently have in your home are old, drafty and not keeping the heat or cold out, you might want to consider vinyl replacement windows. When you install new windows from New York Sash, you’ll find your home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. That’s because windows in older homes can shift over the years, and the wood casings may have been subject to rotting and corrosion. That can leave spaces around your windows where cold (or hot) air can get inside. With new vinyl replacement windows, there will be a tight seal that will keep your conditioned air in, and the outside air out.
Vinyl replacement windows can blend perfectly with the style of your home
When many people think of vinyl windows, they think of their 1980s counterparts that all looked alike, no matter the style of the home. The generic-looking windows of the past may deter people from installing new vinyl windows in their older home. Today, vinyl windows are manufactured to complement the design of older homes perfectly. At New York Sash, we offer custom sizing, so your window will be the exact fit, as well as architecturally accurate exterior window casings to enhance the beauty and design of your project.
