Now that the summer’s winding down and fall temperatures are easing their way into the world, you might start to open some windows to let some fresh air into your home (driving with the windows down is also an incredible feeling). During seasons of milder temperatures, you also have an excellent opportunity to upgrade your windows without leaving your home open to constant streams of hot or cold air. At Noble Roofing, we are also experts with window replacement and repair. We think September through November is a great time to get your windows replaced. Here are 5 reasons why you need a window replacement.
1. Your Home Feels Uncomfortable in the Summer and Winter
If you recall your home getting uncomfortably drafty or muggy in Virginia’s intense winters and summers, drafty windows may be to blame. After ruling out other issues like drafty doors, HVAC problems, you can be pretty sure that your windows are failing you.
If you’re feeling some relief this season and wish your home could feel this good all year long, stop wishing and get those drafty windows replaced! No good will come from letting in hot, muggy air in the summer and cold, dry air in the winter. By keeping warm air inside in the winter and cold, dehumidified air in during the summer, new windows can make your home comfortable once more.
2. You Want To Feel More Secure
Old windows aren’t equipped with the same anti-intrusion mechanisms or extra safety features that make them a pain for a home intruder. Getting new windows with reinforced glass and mechanisms that make it difficult to open from the outside can buy you more time compared to an outdated window. For more peace of mind, equip these new windows with sensors from a home security system so you can know what’s going on 24/7!
3. Your Energy Bills Are High
Replacing your windows can save homeowners up to 33% of their previous energy bills. If you are dreading the winter and its effects on your utility bills, then upgrading your home to keep warm air inside will push the numbers lower again. Selecting a ProVia window that is Energy-Star certified is a great way to ensure the highest energy savings. This will allow your windows to eventually pay for themselves!
4. You Need More Curb Appeal Quickly
Is your home looking a bit worn down compared to the properties around you? Making an upgrade to your home’s windows can make a dramatic change without investing in a large project. Replacing a window takes around 30 minutes on average. This makes it possible to upgrade 12 windows in 6 hours. If you don’t have an extended period of time to devote to home improvement this season, window replacement is a manageable project that has very satisfying results. It’s also a great upgrade to do before the holidays!

5. You’re Tired of Hiring Window Cleaners
Traditional, old-fashioned windows are difficult to clean and usually require the assistance of professional window cleaners. This can add up to your home maintenance bill over time. However, new styles of windows fold in ways that allow you to give them a deep clean while staying inside your house. You can even clean windows on the second story of your home without needing a ladder or expensive tool to reach your window’s exterior.
