Do you know when the windows in your home were last replaced? If you don’t know the answer to this question or the answer is more than 20 years ago, then it’s time for replacement. Windows need to be replaced every so often for a multitude of reasons, even if they don’t look broken to the naked eye.
Are Your Energy Bills High?
Homeowners that use their HVAC system wisely can still experience high energy bills each month. This is due to old, drafty windows that will allow heat into the house during the warmer months and let heat out during the cooler months. By replacing these drafty windows with energy efficient ones, your energy bills can decrease anywhere between 10 and 25 percent!
Do Your Windows Fog Up?
Having windows that fog up during the warmer months and frost over during the cooler months is a telltale sign you need to replace your windows. The presence of moisture within the window tells you that it’s not sealed properly and will contribute to higher energy bills and less comfort. This moisture can also lead to further damage done to the windows as well as promoting mold growth.
Are They Just Plain Ugly?
Over time, windows can become worn, faded, and warped, which can cause your home’s curb appeal to dip. Whether you’re looking to give your home the face lift it deserves or you’re trying to sell, replacing the windows can add serious value and beauty. This will also give you the opportunity to redesign your home by installing a different type for a new look, a larger size for more natural light, and one that opens up for more airflow.
