Replacing just one or two windows may result in a mismatched design or uneven insulation. That makes replacement an all or nothing proposition for many homeowners. If you're on the fence when it comes to replacing your windows, then understanding the benefits that new windows bring to your home can help you to make a major home improvement decision.

Why should you consider replacing your home's old, drafty windows? Take a look at the amazing benefits that replacement windows offer.

New Windows Add Value to Your Home

Replacement windows have a high-cost value percentage, around 73 percent, which means you'll get close to three-fourths of the money you spend on replacement windows back if you sell your home.

If you're planning on selling your home, imagine what potential buyers might think of your home's exterior. Curb appeal is a major issue when it comes to bringing buyers in. If you have dirty, foggy, cracked or damaged windows, then buyers may assume you haven't taken care of your home.

However, if you have brand-new, clean windows, the buyer sees how much you care about your home, and they'll know that new windows are one less project that they'll have to invest in later.

If you have no plans to sell your home right now, you can still see the added value down the road. Keep in mind, you still get to live in your house. That means you can enjoy all of the benefits that new windows bring, and recoup much of your costs later on if you do decide to move.

New Windows Are Energy Efficiency

Drafty windows can cost you money. Older, single-pane windows let the outside air in and the inside air out. This costs you money when it comes to heating and cooling. If your home's HVAC system is working overtime just to keep the space comfortable, your windows may be at fault.

According to the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), most Americans spend between $1,500 and $2,500 a year on energy bills, and 45 percent of the money spent on energy comes from heating and cooling. Energy-efficient windows can reduce these costs.

The specific windows that will work the best in your home depend on where and when the sun hits your home, the size of your home and the climate in your area. This is what makes it absolutely essential to have a professional window contractor help you choose and install your windows.

New Windows Add to the Décor and Design of Your Home

If you're working on a home remodel or upgrade, then you probably want something special when it comes to your windows. Windows can add an extra touch of style to your home's exterior, without having to do a major renovation.

Instead of having to tear down walls, put up siding or make other major changes, a window replacement is a minor project (in comparison to other possibilities) that can have a substantial impact.

Replacing older, foggy windows with new ones offers a fresh look. If you want to step up your décor and design game, you can add decorative features. Specialty windows let the light in, keep your heating and cooling inside and totally transform the look of your home.
