When you get replacement windows in Santa Barbara, CA, you are in for a real treat. There are so many benefits that come with new windows, it’s amazing to recognize how long you lived with old windows in the first place. Do you remember doing experiments with light as a kid? Perhaps you grew one plant in the light and another plant in the dark. Which one did better? The one that grew in the sunlight, of course. The same can be said about your home. There are things that just feel good about natural light and when you get new windows, that’s one of the many benefits you will get.
Even if you don’t make any changes to your windows in style, you will get more light in your home. Older windows have larger, clunkier frames and smaller glass space. When you get new windows, you get frames that are more streamlined and sleek and glass space that is much larger. Even if there are no other changes, you’ll have more light. But many homeowners use the process as a change to make even more changes. They add windows, make them larger, and change style to allow more light into their home.
Natural light can make you feel better and help you to regulate your body, so you sleep better at night. You don’t have to turn as many artificial lights on since you can use natural light for your tasks and that can save you energy beyond what you’ll save from having new windows.
You might worry about natural lighting letting in too much heat. After all, the California sun can be intense when it shines at its brightest. If you upgrade your standard windows to include low-E coatings, you can have comfort and light at the same time. These coatings are invisible and metallic, and they reflect heat. When the sun bounces into your house, the heat bounces back out, but the light is allowed to shine through. You also won’t get any UV rays coming inside so there are no more concerns about fading fabrics and furniture. You get further comfort in the winter as well because when there’s heat on inside your house, the coating reflects it back in, so you use less energy and have more comfort.
