There are a few reasons you might be considering replacing the windows on your home with new ones. One of the main reasons behind most window replacement projects is to add an extra layer of security and protect the family from intruders. But did you know your windows can offer much more than added security? Replacing your windows can also help you save money in the long run.

At Anderson Exteriors in Ramsey, our team of expert replacement window contractors offers a wide selection of windows for your Twin Cities home. In this blog entry, we’ll talk about how a window replacement project can help your family to conserve energy and reduce your overall costs throughout the year.

Security Equals Savings

Did you know that increasing your window security helps you save money? Adding extra protection to a home is one of the main reasons homeowners choose to replace their existing windows. Thieves tend to go for the easy payout, which is why they’re far more likely to choose a home with damaged and outdated windows than new, high-performance windows. After all, no burglar wants to increase the chance he or she will be caught in the act.

Burglary can be an expensive crime for its victims. But protecting your home against burglars may also help to keep your insurance costs down.

Here are a few more ways replacing your windows can save you money in the long run:

1.      Reduce Your Energy Costs.

Keeping your home comfortable throughout the year can cost you if you’re wasting energy. Newer windows prevent heat transfer, which means your HVAC system won’t have to run constantly. It’s better for the environment and it adds up in terms of your monthly energy costs.

2.      Enjoy a Tax Credit.

If you replace your windows, you may be able to qualify for a tax credit. Our window specialists at Anderson Exteriors have worked with homeowners who receive a tax credit for their window replacement many times. Speak to us about which windows may help you qualify for one.

3.      Add to Your Home’s Value.

When you update the windows on your home, you make it more attractive to potential buyers. Windows are one of those design elements that potential buyers notice if there’s a problem. However, if your home has beautiful windows, it can help to speed up the sale and put more money in your pocket at the closing table.
