When should I replace my old windows?
Your house may not be able to actually talk to you, but regardless, it finds a way to communicate when something is wrong. Windows tend to get their point across fairly easily;we just have to be “listening”!
Here are a few signs that it may be time to replace your old windows:
1. Your Energy Bill is Expensive – If your heating and cooling costs are high, it’s likely that you have old windows that are simply not energy efficient. Learn more about how our high-performance Vertex 3 technology maximizes the energy efficiency of our windows.
2. There’s condensation inside the airspace of the Glasspanels(of Double- or Triple-Paned Windows) – If you have double- or triple-paned windows and notice condensation or fog inside the airspace, you might need to replace the glass or the entire window.
3. You Have Difficulty Shutting or Opening Your Windows – If you can’t open or close your windows properly, it’s time to get new ones!
4. You Feel Drafts in Your Home – This may be due to the corners of the sashes and frames becoming loose, or the weatherstripping may have deteriorated and create gaps that allow air to penetrate the window.
So now that you have decided to replace your windows…what now? Get inspired here!
