Replacing Your Colorado Spring Home’s Windows Before Winter
Winter is coming. Or so they say. All joking aside the weather here in Colorado Springs is getting a bit chilly here in November and that means it is time to get all those final home improvement projects done and get your home ready for what could be a long cold winter. Here at Scottish Home Improvements, we know all too well the impact that windows make on a home, from energy bills to curb appeal, because we have spent the last 25+ years replacing them for homeowners in Colorado Springs like yourself. If the threat of a long, cold winter with drafty windows isn’t enough, here are a couple more reasons to replace your windows before the holidays and dead of winter come blowing in!
More Money: Reducing Energy Bills With New Windows
Windows are the first barrier between the elements and your wallet. That’s right, while windows may help heat your home by letting in the lovely Colorado sun–they also can account for an increase of 25% in your heating bill during the winter in the form of leeching of hot air through drafty ones. Replacing your windows with energy-efficient ones just in time for winter will help you save big time all season long and when summer rolls in you will also save significantly in cooling costs as well. A win, win for all seasons!
Updating A Historic Colorado Springs Home Into Something Fabulous
Right now Colorado Springs is going through a renovation boom and now is the time to get that old home looking new and fabulous! Maybe you have old drafty wood framed windows on a towering Victorian home here or perhaps warped, ugly, vinyl windows on an aging bungalow. Regardless of your current situation, one home feature that will make your vintage home look amazing is new windows. Besides the obvious benefit of looking great, they will save you money on your utility bills too and may even qualify you for energy efficiency tax credits too!
Repairing Damage From Severe Colorado Springs Weather
Lest you ever forget that we live right at the foot of the mountains here in Colorado Springs, there are always severe hail and wind storms to remind you. These storms wreak havoc on homes–windows notwithstanding. If you have damage left over from this years storm season, now is the time to get them replaced–so you stay toasty and warm all winter long. If you haven’t checked with your insurance company yet about the damage, do that first, you may be covered under homeowners insurance for damages done by storm and you can roll that money into brand new windows for your Colorado Springs home!
