Taking on replacement windows in Ontario, CA can be very exciting. Not only are you getting a new, fresh look on your home, but you also get a higher level of energy efficiency, among other things. Some homeowners simply take their old windows out and replace them with the same thing, only newer. But this is a change to do things differently, if you see fit to do so. You might want a different material, a varied color, or even new windows. This is a great time to add a picture window, for example, in place of a bank of windows on a wall. Here are some advantages to having a picture window installed.
Enjoy The View
If you have a great view outside your house, you deserve to enjoy it. Sure, you can see a little bit through a regular window, but think of how much a picture window will open things up and let the view come through. Installing a picture window allows you to raise the value of your house just because you can see more of the view. Plus, you can always put windows around it for ventilation and see even more of the view.
Let The Light Shine In
Natural light is a good thing for most areas in a home. When you let in more natural light, you let the space look larger and more welcoming as well as open. Picture windows let in more natural light than any other window because they are completely uninterrupted on their glass space. There are no cross bars, hardware, or anything else in the way so you get the light you want at any time.
Energy Efficiency Increases
You know you’ll increase the energy efficiency in your home when you get new windows, but you can increase it even further if you replace one or more windows with a picture window. Picture windows are the most efficient windows on the market because they don’t have any moving parts. There’s nothing on them to leak air so you don’t have to worry about them wearing out in the future and allowing leaks.
The only downside to a picture window is that you can’t open and close it which takes away ventilation options. But if you plan ahead for that, you can get around it with ease. Perhaps you don’t need ventilation in that space because there are windows that open on other walls. If you do want to ventilate, you can always add windows below, beside, or even above the window to enhance its look even more.
