It can be hard to determine if you truly need new windows or not. Many people don’t give a second thought to their windows unless they are remodeling or building. However, new windows can save you money overall and increase your comfort. Here are the top signs you need new windows.
- Damaged Window – An obvious sign that you need new windows is damage. If you can visibly see damage, or you struggle to open and close a window, it might be time for a replacement. Damaged windows should be repaired sooner rather than later to avoid further damage.
- Leaky Windows/Decay – Wondering if you have a leaky window? A common sign of a leaky window is decaying of the window frame. When wood is exposed to moisture, it will start to decay over time. This damage will require a window replacement to rid of any leaks and potential moisture damage.
- Increased Energy Bill – Has your energy bill suddenly skyrocketed and you can’t seem to determine why? One of the main reasons people experience high energy bills is because of poor insulation and windows. If your windows are not sealing properly, outside air could be seeping in, requiring your HVAC system to work extra hard to regulate the indoor temperature. Having your problem windows replaced can reduce your energy bill greatly in the long run.
- Condensation – Do you notice condensation continually building up in your windows? Depending on the area that the condensation is occurring, you may need a replacement. Condensation between the two panels of glass indicates that moisture is entering through the broken seal and likely requires a window replacement.
