How do I know if I need Replacement Windows?
You have heard the statistics. The right Replacement Windows can help you save 7-15 percent on your energy bills. But you still have one very important question; “how do I know if I need replacement windows?” And that is a very good question. Your current windows may be just fine. But how do you know?
Warning Signs you need Replacement Windows
- Decreased Comfort: Have you noticed that your furnace is having a hard time keeping up with your thermostat settings? Have you noticed drafts coming from your windows? If so, replacement windows could be the answer. Remember, windows wear down over time and eventually can no longer perform as well as you would like or need.
- Functionality: If your windows no longer function as they should – if you have a hard time opening and closing them – you may want to consider replacement windows. This is especially true for older double hung and single hung windows.
- Condensation: Condensation on the inside of your window is never a good thing. This typically indicates a seal failure. The solution: replacement windows.
- High Energy Bills: If your energy bills keep getting higher and higher, your windows could be to blame, at least partially. “If your home has very old and/or inefficient windows, it might be more cost-effective to replace them than to try to improve their energy efficiency,” according to the United States Department of Energy (DOE). “New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs.”
