Most homeowners understand that a window with broken glass needs to be replaced. But what many aren’t aware of is that there may be other less-obvious signs that it’s time to look into getting a window replacement. If this is news to you, and you’ve found yourself wondering whether it’s time to get replacement windows for your home, read on.

Signs It’s Time for Replacement Windows

You shouldn’t be left guessing whether it’s time to replace your windows. Here are some signs to keep an eye out for:

Outdated Windows

Windows play a large role in your home’s curb appeal. If you have old, ugly, outdated windows, you’ll definitely want to invest in replacement windows. This is especially important before you try to sell your home as beautiful new windows can help you get the most out of a buyer. But even if you’re not planning on selling, you’ll love all the great features our energy-efficient windows have to offer.

Normal Operation is Getting Increasingly Difficult

A window should not be difficult to open and close. Some types of windows are prone to warping under the stress of high temperatures and prolonged weather exposure. A broken windowpane or a problem with the moving parts could also be affecting normal operation. Sometimes this problem can be fixed without springing for a replacement, so definitely have an expert take a look before you make any decisions.

Drafty Rooms

This is a symptom that can be attributed to a deteriorating seal. Window seals naturally deteriorate over time, making it harder for the window to perform its most essential function: protecting your home from the elements. Besides drafts, other signs of a failing seal include moisture collecting where it shouldn’t and an increase in fogging and condensation, especially inside of the window and between panes of glass. If outside air is coming in, this is forcing your HVAC system to work overtime to keep the temperature inside comfortable, resulting in higher energy bills.

High Energy Bills

High energy bills are often a result of a deteriorating seal, but it could also just mean that you have low-quality or very old wood or vinyl windows that lack modern energy-saving features. While the only option to fix this is getting them replaced, choosing energy-efficient windows will help with this issue.

If you’ve learned that you need replacement windows thanks to this article, it’s important to work with an experienced window company that can promise a quality product and skilled installation. Many modern windows have options you can select to reduce heat transfer, enhance energy efficiency, and save you money on your monthly energy bills.
