Signs That You Need Replacement Windows

If your once warm and cozy home begins to feel cool and drafty, read on to see if replacement windows would be best for your comfort, your home’s curb appeal, and your energy budget.

Does your home have varying temperatures from room to room?
Chilly breezes during the winter can come from even the tiniest cracks in window glass or window framing, costing the typical homeowner as much as 25 percent more in heating expenses. Likewise, inefficient windows leak cool air in summer, therefore increasing energy costs year round.

Are your windows difficult to open and close?
Over time, windows absorb and expel moisture, which causes them to bend and warp out of shape. The swelling and contraction of framing contributes to window leaks, mold damage to walls, and may serve as an entry point for insects into the home.

Are your windows foggy or difficult to clean?
Sometimes double- or triple-paned windows suffer water damage from condensation permeating the window seals, evident by a white film which is caused by calcium deposited on the glass. Moisture and cold air can seep through in between the glass panes, making the insulated glass of no effect.

Have your furnishings, walls, or carpet become faded from the sun?
Typical new vinyl replacement windows block as much as 95 percent of UV rays and their damaging effects, and are also typically well insulated, offering a nice R-value, which hinders heat loss during the winter. When your windows are not a primary source for heat gain and loss, you may better enjoy opening the drapes and letting sunlight stream into your home.

Does your home have a problem with mold and mildew?
Leaky windows make it difficult to manage humidity inside the home — leading to mold and mildew problems. As long as there is air and water infiltration around windows, there is greater potential for mold and mildew problems, health concerns, and energy loss.
