8 Reasons to Replace Your Southern California Windows Now

Summer is here, and for many of us that means warmer weather, longer days, and a chance to focus on planning home improvement projects.

If you are considering replacing your windows, now is a good time to do so. Newman Windows & Doors President, Duncan Newman shares a few reasons why.

Southern California window replacement – now’s the time to act, here’s why

1. You save money on your energy bill.

Here in Southern California, we have the highest price energy in the country and it just keeps going up.

Energy-efficient windows and doors can help you save money on your energy bill and keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Newer, more efficient windows can help you reduce your energy costs by as much as 30%

How can you save so much on your energy bill by replacing your windows? Firstly, double glazing with Low-E (short for Low Emissivity) coatings help keep heat in in winter and out in summer. This means that your home is more comfortable all year round and you are less dependent on your air conditioning or heating.

Using window materials such as vinyl or fiberglass frames can also stop heat and cold transfer.

Duncan says, “It also blocks an incredible percentage of UV rays from entering your home, causing heat damage in carpets, furniture, and window treatments.”

So a good reason to replace your windows and doors now is simply to protect your home from summer heat and winter cold.

2. Prepare your house for sale

If you’re planning to sell your home in the next few years, now is a great time to take the plunge on those projects you’ve been putting off.

Replacing your windows and doors is a great way to make your home more attractive and valuable. It’s one of the first things buyers will notice, and it can make a big difference in how they see your home in the offset.

Getting off to a flying start with home projects can help you bypass supply chain issues more effectively and ensure your home is in top condition when you’re ready to put your home on the market.

3. It’s a good time to refresh your space

Modern looking windows with new frames can make an immediate difference in the appearance of your home.

Duncan says: “Replacement windows and doors, new windows and doors can make an incredible difference in a home that is 15, 20, 30, 40, 50 years old. When you think of aluminum, silver windows in your house, they don’t make any statement except that I’m old and tired.”

Here at Newman, most installations can be completed in just one day! We pride ourselves on knowing that we avoid all the usual problems associated with a home improvement project.

4. Improve safety and peace of mind

One of the best reasons to replace your windows is for safety. If your home has older windows, they may not have the most up-to-date locking mechanisms. This can put your family and assets at risk. (And no, your tried-and-true stick-in-the-track solution isn’t as secure as you think!)

If you live in an earthquake-prone area, it’s important to make sure your windows are earthquake-proof. Many of the newer windows on the market are designed to withstand seismicity.

5. Reduce noise pollution

If you live in a busy neighborhood or on a main road, chances are you are familiar with the sound of traffic noise. If you have older windows, they may not be great at blocking unwanted noise.

New windows with thicker glass can help reduce the amount of noise that enters your home, making it more peaceful and serene.

6. Be prepared for holiday gatherings

Are you planning on bringing family friends over for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year? If you’re considering replacing your windows or patio doors, now’s the time to get started.

Duncan says: “As you may know, there have been supply chain issues that plague us in recent years. And most window and door manufacturers have a lead time of about 16 to 18 weeks. In layman’s terms, that’s four and a half months. ”

To get your project finished in time for any holiday get-togethers, you want to get the ball rolling now in the summer months.

7. Make your home more comfortable

Do you constantly have to adjust your thermostat to prevent hot or cold spots in your home? If so, your windows can contribute to this.

Older windows can cause drafts and temperature fluctuations. This is because they don’t fit into their frames as well as newer windows. This allows them to seep hot or cold air into your home, making it less comfortable.

Duncan says: “Especially as we get older, we spend more time in our homes. We feel the cold more and we are more affected by the heat. So installing double glazing and doors, vinyl frames and fiberglass frames will improve the temperature control and to equalize comfort in which you live with your home.
