The Benefits of Replacement Window Screens

Cut Energy Costs

You undoubtedly already know that the summer months in Connecticut are more expensive for air conditioning. There’s no need to continuously breathe in that stale air. Installing or replacing window screens will enable you to allow in the chilly midnight air. Fresh air is considerably healthier overall and saves you money on your air conditioning expense. Ventilation is important.

Keep a Cleaner Home

You need functional window screens if you like to keep your house clean and want to keep bugs, leaves, pollen, and grime outside where they belong. Window screens enable you to breathe in clean air while keeping debris and dust from getting in.

Ensure Pet Safety

Do you have a house pet who is adamant about being allowed outside? Although the grass may appear greener to them, you probably don’t want your cat or dog to venture outside and go on the canine version of spring vacation. However, with decent window screens, you may leave your windows open without being concerned that any pets have discovered a method to go it alone.

Turn Away Thieves

The more barriers you may place in their way, the less enticing your home will be to burglars who typically take advantage of crimes of opportunity. It takes longer to take down or cut through screens, making it more difficult for them to enter and exit. Installing screens is a clever approach to convey the idea that your property will be more difficult to break into.

Improve Your Curb Appeal

It just looks better to have clean, new window screens on all of your windows. Whether you want to sell your home or not, making sure you have new window screens creates a uniform appearance along with all of the other benefits we’ve stated above.
