Homeowners who are considering their home improvement projects for 2021 should definitely put replacement windows on the schedule. This year, it’s more important than ever to get your property updated with airtight, energy-efficient windows.
Why should you call out the window contractors in 2021?
Heat, storms, and government edicts will all have an impact on your life. Here are three of the top reasons why you should get new impact windows installed.
Above Average Hurricane Season on the Horizon
In 2020, there were a record-breaking number of Atlantic Storms, 12 of which were hurricanes that made landfall in the United States. Colorado State University also forecasted an above-average hurricane season for 2021. Although researchers don’t think the hurricane season will be as active as 2020, they believe there will be more storms than usual.
Take steps to protect your home now with hurricane glass impact windows. These durable, shatter-proof windows can stand up to high winds and flying debris.
Hot Weather Hitting Hard in Florida
Both 2019 and 2020 have tied as the 2nd hottest years in Florida. If recent history is any indicator, the heat will continue to be excessive in this tropical region. With energy-efficient replacement windows, homeowners can better keep their families cool. Keep an eye out for products with some of the following window features:
- Extra-Thick 90-Gauge Vinyl Frames
- Steel-Reinforced Sashes & 100% Virgin Vinyl Construction
- Super-Hydrophilic Self-Cleaning Glass
- Fusion-Welded Frames and Sashes
- Energy-Efficient Materials for Monthly Energy Savings
- Polar Shield Technology—Argon/Krypton Filled Chambers
- Unique Interlocking Latch System for Maximum Protection
- … and so much more!
Potential Tax Credits Up to $200
In December 2020, the U.S. Government extended the Non-Business Energy Property Tax Credits through January 1st, 2021. If you install Energy Star certified windows, doors, or skylights before this date you may qualify for up to $500 in non-refundable tax credits. However, just window replacements are capped at $200 in tax credits.
