Why Double Glazed Wooden Sash Windows Can Improve The Price Of Your Home
March 7, 2011 | Author: Archie Campbell | Posted in Mortgage

It can be a wonderful living in and earning an old home with the beautiful architecture and timeless features. One of the problems associated with doing so, however, is often the fact that the windows are ill fitting and draughty. With modern technology, however, it is possible to update your home’s windows so that they come up to modern standards. All of this will help to add value to your home while providing you with many other benefits. Let’s have a quick look at a few reasons can why double glazed wooden sash windows can increase the value of your home.
 
Anyone who does have an old home or any type of home that hasn’t got double glazing included should certainly see this as an excellent investment to help them increase their homes value in a number of ways. Over time the money that you spend on this investment should be recouped several times over.
 
One of the reasons for this is because you are likely to save a great deal of money on your heating bill. Older windows are draughty and as such a great deal of heat is likely to escape. This requires more heat to be pumped into the house through your heating system, leading to a more hefty bill at the end of the month. All of this can be reduced significantly simply through the installation of double glazed sash windows.
 
The double windowpanes that you have installed with double glazing will have a small space between them. This is going to help to insulate the house, not only helping to keep heat inside the house, but also in helping to keep noise out as well. As such, if you live in a busy area then noise pollution can be reduced.
 
The safety aspect of installing a these windows is also another important factor for you to consider. The safety aspect shows itself in two distinct ways. Due to the fact that the glass will be more difficult to break, you will be able to benefit from heightened security as intruders will find it more difficult to gain entry into the house. At the same time, however, accidents are less likely to happen within the home as well for the same reason.
 
As a side product of all of this you will also find that your carbon emissions are going to be reduced. This is certainly very important given that we shall be taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint.
 
For these reasons the value of your property is likely to increase relatively significantly. You are likely to make savings along the way, when you do come to sell your house you will be able to do so at a marked up value.
