Determining when it’s time to replace your home’s windows is likely easier than you’d think, as windows often provide telltale signs that they’re no longer doing their job effectively. There are a variety of factors that could signal the need for replacement windows, including:
Whether the result of severe weather, an accident, or long-term wear and tear, broken windows should be replaced as soon as possible because they won’t be able to provide the protection your home needs.
Drafts in Your Home
If your windows’ seals or weather-stripping have deteriorated, you’ll likely notice air drafts when you walk past them. This can put extra strain on your home’s HVAC system and shorten its lifespan.
Condensation on the inside of your windows or between the glass panes is a signal that your windows are poorly insulated and allowing excessive heat transfer. Condensation occurs when the glass is significantly cooler than the air around it.
Diminished Curb Appeal
Aesthetics is also important, and if your window frames are faded and peeling, or the glass is permanently streaked, it’s a good time to start thinking about an upgrade.
