My home has a ton of windows, unfortunately they are all super old.
The homeowner had the home built in the 73s, as well as then did nothing since I purchased it.
In an ideal world with oodles of cash, I would replace every single window. I would get double hung in the study rooms, as well as sliding windows in the entryway as well as entryway… Perhaps I would do a decorative window pattern on the bathroom 1s. Since I don’t have tons of cash to throw around, the windows have to stay, recently I had to purchase a residential window film to protect my home. I realized that most of the windows faced where the sunlight shines brightly. The sun was ruining my carpet, couch, electronics as well as upping my energy bills. I thought about getting windows in just those areas, although I was looking at thousands of dollars. Thankfully sunlight control window film upgrade isn’t that much cash. On older windows that do not have a good Low-E rating, it is a good method to do a film rather than replace. It is a cheaper option that can save you energy overtime. The window film upgrade wasn’t time consuming or difficult. The film is totally clear as well as did not change the look of my window. I could have chosen to do a window tint, but wanted a clear look instead. I have noticed that my fabrics hold up better as well as the home feels much colder. I am blissful I went with this idea. I even read online that adding a window tint or film does add quite a bit of value to a lake house too.
