You may have heard about the many benefits of getting your windows replaced with much more energy-efficient, double-glazed versions, but many worry about the first hurdle: will it be too expensive?
On top of this, many homeowners are worried about the cost in the long-run, and whether it will be an investment that’s worth making. Panic not, however, as there are many funding options for those who want a more secure, energy-efficient home, and not have to empty their bank account to do so.
Many people have heard of the help to buy mortgage schemes, aimed at helping younger generations to get a foot-hold on the housing ladder. Did you know, however, that the same principle exists for those looking to get replacement windows? There are a number of installation companies that are partnering with the Help2Buy Windows Scheme, which provides homeowners with access to otherwise expensive home-improvements. This breaks up the cost of the overall payment, eliminating the need to pay a large, lump-sum up-front.
This funding method makes it more affordable for those who do not have large sums of money in the bank, ready to spend on home-improvements. As with many other funding policies, your needs will be assessed individually so that an estimate of how much funding you will need can be decided. While the funding itself isn’t actually provided by Help 2 Buy Windows, one of the aforementioned associated installation companies will provide this instead.
This cost-saving measure aims to prove to customers that they will be getting a high-quality product when they replace their windows. We deal with manufacturers directly, which means that we don’t have to pay full retail costs. To put it simply, this process cuts out the middle-man, which means that the customer doesn’t have to foot the bill for their replacement windows changing hands.
Savings in the home
Window replacement isn’t just about improving the physical appearance of your home; it’s also about saving money. Trapping heat in your home effectively is incredibly useful when you consider about half of our monthly bills go towards keeping it at the right temperature. Water leaking into the home and heat loss are both two indicators that your windows are not currently serving your needs. If you would like a home that’s warm and toasty during the harsh winter months, then well-fitted and double glazed windows are for you. Without them, you will be losing money if heat filters straight back outside again and into the atmosphere.
