Many Americans are still in the process of filing their 2017 tax returns. But if you’re on top of things, you may have already filed, and if you are fortunate enough to receive a tax return, it could already be sitting in your bank account, waiting for you to decide how to spend it.
We know there are a million ways you could choose to spend your tax return, and some are probably more exciting than spending it on new replacement windows for your home, but hear us out—purchasing replacement windows with your tax return money might just be one of the smartest things you could do!
First of all, if you’re like many people considering replacement windows for your Livermore home, you probably need some sort of financing to pay for them. That could either mean taking out a home equity loan or line of credit, or some other financing option. But if you got back a sizable tax return, you may be able to either forgo any sort of financing altogether, or at least cut down the amount you would need to finance for your new windows. This will save you money on interest (potentially a lot of money, depending on your interest rate) and make your windows a better value in the long run.
Second, consider spending money on replacement windows for your Livermore home a wise investment. Not only will upgrading your windows and doors increase the value of your home, but it will also save you money on your monthly bills because you won’t need to spend as much heating and cooling your home. Energy-efficient replacement windows can make a noticeable difference in how much energy you use to keep your home at a comfortable temperature—especially in the winter and summer months.
Third, you’ll receive long-term enjoyment from your new windows and doors. This may sound odd—enjoyment from new windows and doors?—but we can’t tell you how many of our customers say they would have replaced their old windows and doors years ago, had they know what a difference they would make. It’s hard to explain until you experience it for yourself. Your home just feels brighter, quieter, and more comfortable when you have new windows and doors installed. An old home feels more modern. A cookie-cutter tract home feels special and stands out in the neighborhood. And a house on a busy street suddenly feels more like a peaceful retreat.
So, you could spend that tax return on a new television, or on a vacation. But before you do, take some time to consider investing that money in your Livermore home to increase its value, lower your monthly bills, and get more enjoyment out of it.
