New additions to your home are always nice; it’s great to see your home looking at its best and to have your home improved. However, whilst it’s nice to have something new, colourful or pretty, it’s even better if they have a functional purpose as well, and can even save you money in the long term.
This is why having modern fitted windows, especially in your converted loft are so great. Getting new UPVC windows installed not only makes your house look great, but there are a number of other perks to new windows as well. Here are some of the main perks of having fitted modern windows:
Save money on energy bills. Modern UPVC windows are usually double glazed and as such they keep the warm air in and cold air out. This is done by using two panes of glass, and there is a vacuum between the two panes, preventing the transfer of heat and cold.
The glass is also thicker, and the windows are installed by being sealed in tight, meaning there is no space for draughts around the edges. All of this means that you will need your heating on for a lesser period of time to achieve the same temperature in your property, saving you money over time. This will only happen when you have experienced window installation professionals, so it’s important to make sure that you use reputable window fitters.
Less noise pollution. No matter where you live, you’re bound to have some sort of outside noise, whether it’s the heavy traffic and bustle of a city centre or just the wind and occasional passing car of a rural location.
This can add up to disturbed peace and quiet as well as possible disturbed sleep. The thicker nature of the glass combined with the vacuum between the panes also helps insulate your building of sound, meaning you can keep the outside noise outside.
As heat rises, the addition of modern windows in your loft conversion can keep that heat in.
Better security. The thicker glass of double glazing is much harder to get through making it more of a challenge for potential burglars, and so acting as a deterrent as well as a preventative measure.
Modern fitted windows also have stronger and more secure locks, with options available depending on your needs, to make sure that your windows aren’t seen as an easy point of access and attract crime.
Add value to your home. Because of all of the above windows, modern wooden windows (UPVC) are a highly desirable asset to a home and what people often look for when buying or renting a home. This means you can expect someone to buy for more, or to rent for more, because of this additional benefit.
Don’t forget, that along with all of these perks, it really is something you can enjoy about your home. It gives the outside an instant facelift, and the range of colours and designs available means that modern fitted windows can be something for everyone’s home.
