If you’ve considered having storm protection windows installed in your home or office but are still undecided, you may want to consider why this type of window is such a good investment. Some reasons may be obvious, but there are others that you may not be aware of:
- Storm windows protect you from damaging weather conditions. Storms happen no matter where you live, and quality storm windows can provide additional safety for your home and your possessions inside.
- Storm windows are energy-efficient. Depending on the type of window you choose, storm windows can help reduce cooling and heating costs by providing an extra amount of insulation against the outside air temperature.
- Storm windows can protect your furnishings. Many types of storm windows also block out the damaging UV rays from the sun. It’s these UV rays that can fade furniture, carpets and linens that might be exposed to sunlight inside your home. Cutting out most of the UV rays helps to protect these possessions from sun damage.
- Storm windows typically have longer warranties and last longer than other windows. Although you may pay more initially for storm windows, chances are you won’t have to replace these windows nearly has often as you would with regular lower quality windows.
- Storm windows increase the value of your property. Even if you don’t intend to sell your home or business for years to come, having high quality storm windows will increase the value of your property.
