Your current windows will last you for years. That said, you will eventually need to replace them. How do you know when the time is right? Your windows will start to tell you. Here’s a guide to why you need to replace your windows.
Can’t Open or Close
If you can’t open or close your windows, then that is a major sign they need to be replaced. One problem with this is that you can’t let in any fresh air. While this is bad in the winter, it’s even worse in the spring, especially on sunny days. However, circulation might not be your only concern. Being able to lock your windows means you can secure them, and if you can’t lock them, then you might want to consider replacing them. When you replace the windows on your home and also install some new doors, you can make your home safer and help prevent damage caused by the weather.
Drafty windows will affect the energy efficiency of your home. Save some money as winter turns into spring by replacing your windows. Your home should always be comfortable, no matter what the time of year is.
They Look Too Old
When your windows start showing their age, you should think about replacing them. You don’t want your windows to look too old, especially if your neighbors get new ones installed every few years. Neglecting the outside of your home can be just as bad as ignoring the inside, especially if you happen to live in an area with strict HOA guidelines on how your home should look.
Energy Bills Are Going Up
Let’s say your energy bills are also going up. Slowly at first, and then more and more quickly as the months go by. As the winter comes to an end, you need to keep a closer eye on your energy bills, because any unusual changes could indicate heat loss through your windows, which is another sign you need to replace them.
You expect your windows to shut out noise from the outside world. It’s possible that the seals on the windows are broken and that the glass doesn’t work the way it used to, even if you got it for its noise-dampening qualities. If you’re unsatisfied with how your windows are performing, then it might be the time to replace them.
