If you want to be warmer when Old Man Winter hits AND beautify your home in the process, the numbers don’t lie: energy efficient windows are the best investment you can make.

Replacing your existing windows with energy efficient vinyl windows is no longer a luxury. It has become one of the most basic and easy to justify upgrades a person can make on their home – something that is especially true when harsh winter storms roll into town.

By their very nature, modern energy efficient brands like Soft-Lite windows help reduce heat loss from your home by up to 15%, adding value to your home, keeping it warmer, and helping reduce your energy bills.

According to the 2015 Remodeling Impact Report issued by the National Association of REALTORS, about 80% of the cost of new window installation is recouped in increased home values. That makes new windows one of the best investments you can make in your home

But there is more to an investment than just home values. A homeowner wants to feel as if they got something tangible out of their investment.

Window technology has come a long way in recent years. These days, energy efficient windows boast double panes, double-wall sill dams, Energy Star-rated glass, and other advancements that help these windows better maintain temperatures in your house, prevent the air leakage common in older windows, and other features that act as a weather barrier.

Studies show that Soft-Lite’s Pro vinyl windows have less than 1/4 the air leakage of industry standard traditional windows. In other words, they’re more airtight. That means the weather stays out and your heat stays in.

As a result, homeowners can expect savings of about 15% per year on their energy bills. That’s a significant amount of money over the lifespan of your windows.

It means more than just saving money on your energy bills, too. Eliminating drafts means no more cold spots in your home. Keeping your heat from escaping means no more cold winter nights. It means better health for you and your family, and a better quality of life for all.

While there are many aesthetic reasons to replace your windows – when it comes to style and décor, there are no limitations with modern vinyl windows, from double-hung windows to sliders, casements, bay windows, patio doors and more – the greatest argument in favor of switching to energy efficient windows is to keep warm while saving money on your energy bills.

This is where modern energy efficient windows excel.

The Men With Tools use Soft-Lite Windows. This well-reviewed brand offers a wide array of looks that are appropriate for any home while also offering the kind of competitive pricing homeowners demand.

But more importantly, Soft-Lite are standard bearers for what modern window technology should be.

Because The Men With Tools use Soft-Lite windows, homeowners upgrading with them can expect a manufacturer’s lifetime warranty that guarantees their new windows will not rot, rust, warp or pit, and that their vinyl colors will remain true for the life of their home.
