Most homeowners install new windows for pretty standard reasons. These reasons vary from person to person but generally they revolve around keeping the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Some variations include sound reduction, aesthetics, and increasing the value of the home.
Over the years, the HomeProHub Referral Service has helped thousands of homeowners accomplish these solutions and have found that the initial reasons they installed new windows paled in comparison to the overall increase in happiness with their home. People find that they have a renewed passion for improving their home’s appearance because they’re so much more comfortable living there. It’s almost like buying a new home.
What’s happening is that people realize the home they were living in before they replaced their windows was not very warm, cool, clean, or quiet. Once their new windows were installed, all of these wonderful and comfortable feelings came out and they discovered a newfound appreciation for their home.
Once this new appreciation surfaces, people find themselves wanting to invest more in the appearance because it’s much more rewarding. We can’t say for sure, but we imagine the reason this happens is because prior to the window upgrade (when these homeowners did just minor improvements), there was still a level of discomfort that they couldn’t quite put their finger on. These feelings tend to go away after the overall comfort level of the home goes up with installing new windows.
This would probably best relate to losing weight: Once we shed those extra pounds, shopping for new clothes is fun again!
We tell people all the time that replacing your windows is more than just “replacing your windows.” If you’re trying to decide if you should take the plunge, we say go for it – you will not regret it.
