** Yes, you CAN get efficient, secure windows on a budget. **
Windows provide much more than just a good view. They can enhance the design of a home, help maintain indoor temperatures and help save on your power bill.
On the other hand, keeping old windows can leave you with air and moisture leaks, fading furniture, noise intrusion, and overuse of heating or cooling.
If you face any of these problems in your home, it’s time to update your windows. But with all the options available, it can be hard to decide what best suits your needs. To narrow down your options, start by figuring out what your home needs and how much you can spend.
1. How Can I Get Better Windows on a Budget?
Windows can be expensive to replace and install—but Sears replacement windows don’t sacrifice quality for price.
“All windows from Sears are vinyl and dual-glazed, and have low-E insulation,” says Dave Lincon, a home improvement expert for Sears Home Services. Low-E is a coating on the glass that keeps out the sun’s heat in summer and keeps heated air inside in winter.
“The price of a standard window includes the complete cost of installation, with no hidden fees or surprises,” Lincon says. “They’re a great lower-cost option.”
If the price still seems intimidating, don’t worry: An investment in new windows typically pays off by reducing your energy bills and increasing the value of your home.
2. Can I Improve Home Security with New Windows?
New windows can provide invaluable security and peace of mind. Laminated glass windows prevent windows from shattering.
3. Will New Windows Offer Better Energy Efficiency in My Home?
Every homeowner (and the planet) could stand to be more energy efficient. Lincon says, “All windows meet all ENERGY STAR® requirements across the US.” With all windows from Sears being Energy Star-certified, buying windows for your home will be as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
By installing ENERGY STAR-certified windows, you can lower your home energy bills by an average of 12 percent, according to the EPA. You can also lower your carbon footprint and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
