Should you replace your old windows or restore the ones you currently have? There are numerous tax credits being offered to homeowners for having the windows in their home replaced with energy-efficient ENERGY STAR products. When you have the windows of your home replaced with ENERGY STAR products you will not only be receiving multiple tax credits, the energy you use will amount to about 30% less than you were using with your old windows.


Some of the main reasons people look to replace their old windows are:


  • The window in place has become worn out.
  • There is an excess amount of wind and drafts being allowed through the existing windows.
  • Utility bills for heating have increased dramatically.
  • The windows on your home have become difficult to open and close.
  • High maintenance required for older windows.
  • It can be hard to clean older windows.


Having your windows replaced by a qualified company, such as HomeTech Windows and Doors, can be a good idea if there are any problems occurring with your current windows; or if you’re just looking to give your home a more modern appearance. You can also receive some pretty hefty rebate checks from the government and the manufacturers, which gives you an even bigger incentive to have your windows replaced.


When you have decided to have your windows replaced, there are a few things that will need to be done in preparation for the installation. You will need to move any household items, including rugs, furniture, pictures or anything else within the vicinity of the windows to allow the window installer enough room to work. If there is anything near the windows outside of your house, you’ll need to ensure that you remove anything that might be in the way of the installer’s equipment and become a hindrance to doing the job efficiently. You will need to keep your children and pets away from the windows to ensure their safety at all times.


The professional window installers will provide drop clothes to place over your furniture to prevent any damage that may occur from any stray parts or material that comes off when replacing the windows. You won’t need to worry about a thing. The professional installers are trained to do the job in a courteous fashion that ensures as little interference with your daily life as possible.


However, if you are doing it to lower your energy bills and provide maintenance free windows, just remember one thing: nothing is maintenance–free! Even the new window replacements that you are about to have installed will look beautiful for about ten to twenty years, but then, they will need replacing. Believe it or not, everything you do to your home requires maintenance. But with services like HomeTech, you’ll have beautiful windows for a long while.


The windows that HomeTech Windows and Doors provides are beautiful and will add value as well as beauty to your home. If you are seeking energy efficient windows, and a chance to do some minor cosmetic work to the outside of your home, then give the professionals a call they will be happy to come out and serve you.
