3 Surprising Benefits of Installing Egress Windows in Your Home

Egress windows are windows that provide an emergency exit for your home, but they offer many more benefits beyond safety. 

1. Increased Natural Light – Egress windows are typically larger than standard windows, which allows more natural light to enter your home. This not only makes your home feel brighter and more inviting, but it can also reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day. Additionally, increased exposure to natural light has been shown to improve mood and overall well-being.

2. Improved Home Value – Egress windows are considered a safety feature, which can be attractive to potential buyers. Additionally, the increased natural light and potential for additional living space can also make your home more appealing to buyers. Installing egress windows can be a smart investment in your home and its resale value.

3. Additional Living Space – By meeting size requirements, egress windows can turn your basement into a legal living space. This can be a great way to add extra living space to your home without the expense of an addition. It’s important to work with a professional to ensure your egress window meets the necessary requirements for this purpose.
