However, if your windows are past their prime or have been damaged, they can lead to unwanted issues like higher monthly energy costs. If you’re trying to decide whether or not it’s time to replace the windows in your New Jersey home, here are some signs to look for:


If you notice condensation on the inside of your windows or in between the glass panes, it’s a sign that your windows aren’t preventing heat transfer adequately and that the seals are failing. A likely result is that your home’s HVAC system is working harder than it should.

Air Drafts

Whether caused by bad frames or bad seals around the glass panes, air drafts entering your home from your windows is an especially bad sign. Keep in mind that up to 30% of residential heating and cooling energy usage can be the result of poorly performing windows.

Frame Damage

Older window frames that haven’t been taken care of can crack, warp, and rot, leading to a host of issues.

Operation Difficulties

If your windows are difficult to open and close, it could be a sign that the frames have deteriorated and need to be replaced.
