Replacing the glass in your windows is a financial commitment, but the benefits that new insulated glass units (IGUs) bring make the investment more than worth it. Take a look at five great reasons why residents across Calgary are replacing their window glass:
1. Insulate Your Home More Efficiently
New window panes significantly improve the efficiency of your home, insulating it effectively against the outside world. This greatly reduces the work your HVAC systems have to do to keep the environment in your home constant, reducing your bills and saving you money.
2. Secure Your Home Against Unwelcome Visitors
No one likes to let unwelcomed visitors into their home, but broken windows do just that, presenting a clear avenue of entry for pests. It isn’t just pests that can spot the entry opportunity either, your run-down windows may attract the attention of local thieves looking for easy opportunities. New window glass will detract both kinds of pests.
3. Revitalize Your Home
Your home is probably your biggest investment, so don’t let it become run-down. Investing in your home will increase its appeal, give you pride in its appearance as well as add to its value.
4. Invest in Your Comfort
Updating your window glass can significantly improve the comfort levels of your home. Your HVAC systems will be able to heat up and cool down your house quicker, and you’ll experience less uncomfortable drafts.
5. The Sound of Silence
Modern day living is rarely quiet, and while the hustle and bustle of your neighbourhood can offer its own kind of charm, there are some days when you’d really like a bit of peace and quiet. IGUs significantly reduce the amount of noise that enter your home, allowing you to enjoy silence in your abode.
