Storm windows are a very popular renovation project throughout the New England area. Because of our intense weather conditions that fluctuate from hurricanes to blizzards. Storm windows also provide better insulation for homes at a very affordable cost. Whether you have noticed an annoying draft in your home, or your utility bills have become excessive, installing storm windows can help make a great difference. Here are a few reasons you should consider getting storm windows installed at your home.
Energy Efficiency & Added Insulation
The primary and most important reason to get storm windows added to a property is that they provide better insulation. With New England’s hot summers and freezing winters, having good insulation is a must. Not only will it make you and your family more comfortable it will also decrease your utility bill month to month because it will take less energy to heat or cool your home. As an added bonus, energy efficiency is great for the environment as well.
Outdoor Noise Reduction
Do you live in a noisy area? If you live next to a highway or in a loud neighborhood, storm windows can also help provide noise reduction for your home. Windows and doors are how the majority of outdoor noise travels into the home. Because of the double panels between the storm window and your house, less noise can travel and disturb your family.
Functional & Stylish
Storm windows add a layer of protection for your home’s existing windows. In the past, storm windows did not come in many varieties and could be an eyesore. But with so many options, homeowners have become more receptive to installing storm windows. Anything that is added to the outside of your home should match your home’s design.
