Feeling Depressed this Winter? Brand New Windows Can Change Your Perspective on Many Things! March 6, 2015 This winter has been an incredibly long one. The brutally cold temperatures, high amounts of snowfall, and much more have worn just about everyone down. While the sun may be shining a bit higher in the sky now, feeling that cold, feeling trapped by all the snow and ice surrounding you, can lead to feelings of depression. People prefer to be outside, enjoying the nice weather, basking in a warm breeze, all while running around in shorts and short sleeves. They also enjoy being able to open the windows, throw open the blinds or other window coverings, and letting the sun shine into their home. If every time you open a window covering, such as a shutter or blind, and you see the sun coming through the glass but only notice the stains, the poor condition of the window itself, and end up dropping the blind back down or closing the shutter, it will keep your home a bit darker throughout the season. Those old, outdated, worn out windows that are pitted or stained from years of the sun baking dirt, rainwater, and everything else onto the surface are just crying out to be replaced. Replacing your old windows with brand new replacement ones can completely change your perspective on many things. First and foremost, it can make you feel more confident and comfortable throwing open those window coverings to allow the bright sunlight in. It will also help you feel more refreshed when you have more direct sunlight pouring into your home. Of course, using low-e film coating on the windows will help cut down the on the amount of heat generated by the sun during summer, while also providing you comfort and some warmth during the winter and spring months.
