New windows are stylish, practical additions that bring endless benefits to your home—but how do you know when it’s time to upgrade? Any time is a good time, but here are a few simple signs that suggest your space is especially ready for the switch.
Your home is too hot, even when the AC is on full-blast
Let’s face it, Florida summers can be pretty hot! But when you get back home, your indoor space should be a cool retreat from the heat outside—a chance to recharge and unwind in a comfortable environment. If your home isn’t quite the cool retreat you want, even though the air conditioning is running constantly, that may be a sign your windows are letting the cool air leak out. This can happen with windows that are made with older glass, since the air can pass through more easily—and fortunately, replacement windows can help! Even if you already like the look and feel of your windows, we can come in and simply swap out the glass for a more efficient option. (As a bonus benefit, solving the cool air problem will also help you save more on your energy bill, since you won’t have to crank your AC system quite as much to achieve the temperature you desire.)
Your furniture is fading
We all know that sunscreen is essential for covering up outside—but did you know that the sun’s rays can penetrate older windows and “burn,” or fade, your furniture, flooring and drapes, too? It’s an unwanted side effect of Florida’s famous sunshine, but replacing your windows provides an easy fix. Many newer windows still let in plenty of sunshine, but are built to better withstand the effects of the weather outside… even good, sunny weather!
You crave a quieter at-home experience
Did you know that select windows can even provide a better sound barrier between your home and the world outside? Like we said earlier, your home should be the place where you feel most relaxed and at-ease, so don’t let noise from the street outside prevent you from unwinding!
You need smarter storm protection
We’re in the midst of hurricane season, so storm protection is likely on everyone’s minds. If you want to avoid the scramble of putting up shutters in the event of a storm, newer impact windows might be right for you! These windows can replace shutters for a more streamlined option, so it’s one less step you need to take when you get news about a storm. As another benefit, these windows will also give you peace of mind for everyday summer storms, as they can protect your home from all types of windborne debris.
Your space looks dated—or you want to achieve your dream home
While new windows provide a host of practical benefits, let’s not forget about one of the most important perks: they can improve the look of your home! Aesthetics are important to achieving a space that you truly love. So whether your current setup looks a little dated, or you simply want to turn your current home into your dream home with new windows and stylish frames, a switch might be right for you this summer!
