It’s time to upgrade your home’s worn-out windows. Old windows leak heat and let in drafts. Their poor insulation sends your heating bill skyrocketing, and they let in more noise from busy streets outside.
Replacing your windows with high-quality Kensington Quantum 2 windows is one of the best investments you can make in your home. You’ll increase the curb appeal of your home, improve your insulation and slash your energy bills. Read on to learn more about how these windows will benefit your home and family.
1. Quantum 2 Windows Keep You Warm
Older windows often have far worse insulation than new ones. Then with time and temperature changes, the seals around them start to crack and break, letting in cold air. Sealing every old window individually is time-consuming and unsightly, and it only does so much to improve your home’s insulation.
Solve the problem once and for all by installing new Kensington Quantum 2 windows. With foam-filled window frames and sashes, reinforced interlocks, dual weather stripping and airtight construction, these windows keep the cold air out and the warm air in. Plus, insulation isn’t just important in winter. When summer rolls around, your Quantum 2 windows will keep your cool, climate-controlled air inside your home too. You’ll see a positive effect on your home’s temperature all year.
2. Enjoy Sound Protection from Kids and Carolers
It’s not always a “silent night.” Winter holidays and fresh snowfall bring kids outside to play, and their games can get loud. Christmas carolers’ songs and bells ring out through the neighborhood, and snowplows scrape their blades against the pavement. Sounds carry loud and clear through icy air, and your old, worn-out windows will let all of this noise into your home.
When your windows have proper insulation, your home isn’t just warmer; it’s quieter too. Protect your home’s tranquility by installing Quantum 2 windows in your home. You’ll have more calm and quiet on holiday evenings, and you’ll be able to sleep in uninterrupted on snowy mornings.
3. Stop Overspending and Save with Quantum 2 Windows
When your windows have poor insulation, then you’re paying more to heat outside air. As warm air escapes through your windows and cold air creeps in, your energy bill creeps higher. Plus, your furnace has to work harder to heat your home, which results in extra wear and tear on your home’s HVAC system and expensive maintenance and repair bills down the road.
Don’t throw your money “out the window.” When you invest in Kensington Quantum 2 windows, you’re protecting your home from the elements. Cold air stays outside where it belongs, and your warm air stays in. That means it takes less energy to heat your home during a cold winter. Your energy bill will go down, and the environment will thank you.
4. Block UV Rays
You may not think of winter as a time when ultraviolet radiation from sunlight enters your home. However, any skier will tell you that they wear eye protection to block winter sunlight, especially snow glare on days when the sky is clear. The sun is deceptively dangerous during winter, and its UV rays are as powerful as ever.
Traditional glass offers little protection against UV rays. This radiation enters your home and does real damage, especially in high altitudes like those in Denver. The sun will fade rugs and upholstery, damage wood, and create uncomfortable glare
Take proactive steps to protect your furniture and fabrics. Kensington Quantum 2 glass blocks UV rays so that your home’s most-treasured possessions will last far longer.
5. Choose Between Double-Pane “Low-E” and Heat Mirror Glass
Kensington Quantum 2 windows offer many bonus options to homeowners. It’s easy to pick exactly the windows each room needs to keep your home warm and quiet, your energy bills low and your furniture protected from UV radiation.
Heat Mirror trademarked glass windows have beautiful, handcrafted glass and a design that enhances thermal performance. These windows’ insulation has an impressive rating of R-5.9, which is 40 percent more than the double-pane “Low E,” or lower light emissivity, windows. Their suspended-film technology blocks 99.5 percent of UV rays, and the dense noble gases between their windowpanes insulate your home and block outside sound. These are some of the most high-tech windows on the market, and it’s no wonder that the Empire State Building recently replaced all its windows with Heat Mirror Glass!
Double-pane, Low-E windows control your home’s temperature. Their two panes of glass provide excellent insulation during all seasons. Their Low-E coating reflects solar radiation and heat so that your home’s climate stays under control during the summer.
Your home’s old, worn-out windows are a liability. They leave your home drafty and uncomfortable, let outside noise in and send your energy bills through the roof. With Kensington Quantum 2 windows, your home will warm up with better insulation, and you’ll see a real reduction in your energy bills. Plus, your new windows are an investment that will greatly increase the value and curb appeal of your home.
It’s best to start replacing your home’s old windows before winter’s chill sets in and relatives start visiting for the holidays.
