How to Know When it is Time to Replace Windows

Many homeowners take their windows for granted. But old or damaged windows can result in drafty homes, heat loss, and high energy bills. So unless you are content wasting money for no good reason, it may be time to start considering window replacement.

Below, you will find several signs that will indicate if it is time to replace your windows. These include:

Disrepair: This is the most obvious sign that replacement windows are needed. If your windowpanes are cracked or broken or if your windows are difficult to open or shut, it is probably time to replace your windows.

Home Remodeling Project: Sometimes, even if there are no signs of structural or functional problems, it may still be time for new windows. Maybe you just want to replace your old, unsightly windows and update the look over your home, increasing both curb appeal and home value. That is perfectly ok.

Going Green: Are high energy bills getting you down? Then it is time for new energy efficient windows! These new windows will keep warm air from escaping in the winter and keep cold air in during the summer. This will save you tons of money on your monthly energy bills by making your home much more energy efficient. And depending on the type of replacement windows you choose, your energy bills can be reduced by as much as 25 percent.
