Signs You Should Replace Your Windows

Replacement windows can improve your home’s appearance, conserve more heat and decrease your energy bills. However, splashing the cash on new windows is not always necessary. Here are some signs that you may need to replace your windows.

Things To Consider Before Investing In Replacement Windows

Energy Bills

If you notice that your energy bills are getting progressively higher, this could be a sign that your windows need replacing. Old windows tend to leak hot and cold air to the outside which forces your cooling and heating systems to work harder to maintain the comfort of your home.

Water Seeping Through Your Windows

When water is seeping through your windows this can damage them and lead to expensive repairs down the line. It is also dangerous to the rest of your home because water can end up on the floor which can increase the chances of someone slipping. Hence, if you notice this sign you may need to invest in window replacement.

Foggy Glass

With double-glazed windows, it is possible for condensation to get trapped between the panes. This can lead to your glass looking foggy which may imply there is a leak. If your window is still in good condition you may need to just fix the seal on the window. On the other hand, if the unit is old and brittle, it is worth replacing your window altogether.

Soft Window Frames

If you have wooden windows you should pay attention to the softness of the exterior framing. When the framing is soft, this is a sign you need window replacement as the whole unit is damaged.

The Effort Required To Close Or Open Your Windows

When your windows get stuck this is a major sign they need replacing. A window that doesn’t shut properly may be caused by window frame deterioration. So if you want your windows to work smoothly again you may need to purchase a new unit.
