New windows and doors LOOK GREAT!
Homes with new energy-efficient doors and windows are attractive to prospective buyers. Replacement costs are recouped at 70–80% of the cost to replace them. Energy efficiency also allows maintaining a constant comfortable temperature, reducing drafts and reducing small unwanted guests.
Reduced condensation on window panes and sills in turn reduces molds and mildew, which is a leading cause of allergies in the home. Reduced condensation also reduces wood rot, and termites.
New glazing technologies can also cut ultraviolet rays that can fade and damage upholstery and carpeting. Advanced coatings on glass can improve the quality of light because tints are no longer needed to reduce solar heat gain. Let the light in without the harmful effects.
Energy-efficient doors and windows can result in reduced demand for cooling and heating too. With some models, it may be possible to reduce the size required for heating and air conditioning systems by as much as 30%. The old awning and jalosie windows will gain the most benifit.
A new door, in a new door frame, with new weatherstriping will close right,
keep the drafts out, operate easily, and add security.
