Why Does It Make Sense to Buy New Windows?

(2 min read)

There are several reasons why it makes sense to invest in new windows, from poor energy efficiency to ease of maintenance. We’ve identified these top reasons to consider replacing your home’s windows:

  1. Draftiness and efficiency
  2. Curb appeal
  3. Home security
  4. Noise reduction
  5. Maintenance

1. Old windows can be drafty and inefficient

Old windows can be drafty and inefficient, resulting in a loss of heat in the winter and an increase in air conditioning costs in the summer. This not only affects the comfort of your home but also increases your energy bills. New windows are designed to be energy efficient, with features such as multiple panes of glass and low-emissivity coatings that help to retain heat and reduce heat transfer. This can result in significant savings on your energy bills, ultimately offsetting the cost of the new windows.

2. New windows can improve the look of your home

New windows can improve the aesthetic appeal of your home. Old windows can become discoloured, outdated and worn over time, detracting from the overall appearance of your property. New windows come in a range of styles and finishes, so you can choose windows that complement the architecture of your home and enhance its curb appeal. This can increase the value of your property and make it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell in the future.

3. New windows can improve the security of your home

New windows can improve the security of your home. Older windows may be more susceptible to being forced open by potential burglars, putting your home and belongings at risk. New windows are designed with advanced locking systems and reinforced frames, making them more secure and giving you peace of mind.

4. New windows can reduce outside noise pollution

Additionally, new windows can reduce the amount of outside noise getting in, providing a quieter and more peaceful living environment. Older windows may not be as effective at blocking out noise from traffic or neighbouring homes, but new windows are designed with soundproofing features to reduce noise levels. This can improve the overall quality of life in your home.

5. New windows can be easier to use and maintain

New windows are very likely to be easier to use and maintain. Older windows may be difficult to open and close, and or may require regular maintenance and repair. New windows are designed to be easy to use and low-maintenance, requiring little more than regular cleaning to keep them in good condition. This can save you time and effort, and help to extend the lifespan of your new windows.


Overall, investing in new windows makes sense for a number of reasons. They can improve the energy efficiency, aesthetic appeal, security, and quietness of your home, and are easy to operate and maintain. While the initial cost may be higher than repairing old windows, the long-term benefits and savings on energy bills can make it a worthwhile investment.

We recently decided to replace our front door, and could not be happier with the result! Thanks so much to Kate, for her time and understanding. Cannot say enough good things about the installation, and Cameron was tidy and efficient. It's been a pleasure to work with Three Counties recently, doors and windows. Many thanks!

Excellent service!! We had 21 windows and 3 doors installed and very happy with it all. The process from start to finish was stress free and Ron and Lee who installed the windows and doors were great. Would definitely recommend!

Just had my tatty old windows replaced by Three Counties, and it’s been a highly professional job from start to finish. Communication from the administration team was prompt and courteous at all times, and installation ended up being much quicker than advertised projections. Installation was without issue and the lads who did the work were amenable to my requirements and did an excellent job. Very happy with the entire process. Three Counties were recommended to me by friends and I can certainly now recommend them to others.

Bought two new windows and a new front door from Three Counties, was very impressed with the attitude of all staff, who were friendly and informative. Price was good, and installation completed without a hitch - very happy with the final product, and would definitely use again.

We have just had all our windows (18) replaced, french doors (20 and side panels (2) by Three Counties. We could not be more pleased with their workmanship and the finished product. They left the property incredibly clean after each day, and this despite the messy nature of ripping out old windows and frames. We were kept informed at each stage and a minor snagging issue was resolved promptly and efficiently after installation. A first class service. We would not hesitate to recommend Three Counties.

Three Counties have now installed several windows and doors on our house and they're always my go-to company. I used another before I discovered them and they let me down, but I absolutely cannot fault Three Counties. From the moment you contact them they're courteous and professional, and they keep in touch with timescales and installation times. Friendly installers too, who go above and beyond. You'd think all this great service would cost more but they beat other companies on price. Highly recommended and trusted, I'd never go anywhere else now.
