When to Replace your Windows

Are you wondering when to replace your windows? You need to inspect your windows to see if they have any of the following problems;

  • Drafts– If your windows are drafty, they are allowing heat to come in from the outside. You are pretty much throwing money out the window.
  • Single pane windows– Some older homes have single pane windows. Double pane windows have an insulating layer of gas between the panes; single pane windows do not have this benefit. Therefore they are less energy-efficient.
  • Frame condition– Older windows, especially wood windows, take a beating over time. Frames can become warped and cracked due to temperature fluctuations over time.
  • Inoperable windows– Often go hand-in-hand with poor frame condition, older windows can become inoperable. Your windows may not open due to sash wear, being painted shut under many layers of paint, or not remain open due to sash or balance problems.
  • Glass condition– Over time, seals between the two panes of glass can weaken and become broken. When seal failure occurs, the gas between the panes escapes and you lose the beneficial insulating properties. A sure sign of seal failure is fog or condensation on the inner glass.
  • Increased utility bills– Compare your energy bills from the last few years. Don’t look at the dollars spent- compare the kilowatt hours used in the same month over years. If you see an increase, that is an indication your home isn’t as energy-efficient as it once was. Some utility providers offer online usage analysis tools to help determine if your usage has increased.

If your windows have any of the above problems, then it is time to replace your windows.
