5 Reasons to Invest in Professional Basement Window Installation

Are you looking for a simple home improvement idea that will still make your property look great? Most likely, you have not thought about replacing your old egress window or even installing a new one if there is none yet. Basement window installation is one of the best home improvement ideas and it comes with myriad benefits.

If you are in the process of remodeling your basement, a new egress window must be part of the project for the following reasons:

  1. Enhancing Your Family’s Safety

A functional basement window is important in case of a fire or any other emergency. It provides easy access out of the house if the main entry is blocked or inaccessible for any other reason. Many people have lost lives during fires because they had no way out and by installing this window, you can avert such situations.

  1. Basement Improvement

Most homes have a basement, but this space is neglected and is used for haphazard storage. However, you can now finish your basement and transform the hitherto neglected space into a beautiful family room, kids’ playroom, guest room or a study. By installing a basement window, you will make this living space even more welcoming by allowing in natural light. The user will find it more comfortable to work in.

  1. Improvement of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

By installing a high quality and water-tight egress window for this living space, you will effectively keep mold out. An abandoned basement is prone to mold growth but when you have a basement window; it is easier to control moisture in the room. Most of the older window structures leak and this exacerbates the basement water problem.

When the basement humidity levels are well controlled, the indoor air quality on the upper floors improves. You will have fewer cases of respiratory illnesses emanating from high humidity levels in the basement.

  1. Compliance with the Building Code

The law requires that any basement that is being utilized as a living space should have an egress window. This is for the safety of the occupants in case of fire emergencies.

  1. Cut Energy Bills

Basement window installation helps to cut the cost of home maintenance. Old egress windows let in air, which forces the HVAC systems to work harder. During hot weather, there is flow of hot air through broken windows and again, keeping the indoor space cooler costs a lot.

The new basement window systems in the market are more aesthetically appealing and also add value to your home. If you are remodeling your basement, make sure you install the best window system and give your home a new look.
