New year, new start. That’s what we all say, isn’t it? The run-up to 2018 probably has you thinking about all the amazing things you’ll be doing to reinvent and improve yourself and your life over the next year. But what about your home?
Now is the perfect time to think about how you could revitalize your home this new year. Replacing your double glazing not only gives your home a fresh new look, but it can save you hundreds of pounds on your energy bills for the year too.
The most common time of year people tend to get their windows replaced is in summer, but you could reap a multitude of real benefits from bucking this trend.
You won’t have to wait as long for your windows
The usual reason summer replacements are so popular is that the warm weather can make the installation easier. But highly experienced installers are trained in winter installations. They’re able to utilize modern techniques to make fitting your double glazing this New Year just as effective as any summer job, so you have nothing to worry about.
Because so many people are unaware of this, you’ll also benefit from more flexibility in booking your installation as well as a shorter waiting time. Because demand for installations slows down this time of year, you’ll most likely be able to pick the exact time and day for your fitting that works best for you.
If you’re looking to sell your home in 2018, starting the new year off with new windows could greatly increase the value of your property. Contemporary double glazing add to the beauty and energy efficiency of your home, making it much more attractive to potential buyers.
The most wonderful time of the year
New Year also falls at the perfect time for home renovations. In the run-up to the holidays, you’ll have house guests, gifts, food and far too many other things to focus on to worry about your windows. Which is ironic, considering it’s this time of year you’ll be wasting the most heat, energy and money through inefficient glass.
During summer, you don’t want to be trapped in the house whilst work is being done and if it’s really hot, having the windows taken out will mean it’s hard to keep that stifling out of your home. Having your windows out during the installation will also mean your precious cool air will escape whereas, in winter, your installer can contain the cold to a particular room at a time to keep your home inhabitable.
In the dead of winter, having your double glazing replaced means you’ll be able to truly appreciate your home’s newfound warmth, and you’ll be covered for the rest of the cold season and many winters to come.
Save yourself a lot of money
As it is already the middle of winter, a lot of the money you spend on heating your home could quite literally be going straight out the window. It’s thought that around 20% of the heat in your home is lost.
With insulating double glazing, it’ll cost you a great deal less to make and keep your home warm. So, you’ll have money to spare for that gym membership, plane ticket, bungee jump, or whatever your New Year’s resolution may be.
Investing in replacing your double glazing in the frosty new year means you can start to benefit from impressive savings on your energy bills straight away.
