Window replacement is an excellent way to upgrade your home. But how do you know if it is necessary or time to make a change?
Like anything in your home, windows do not last forever. Whether they get damaged or you’re looking to upgrade, there will eventually come a time when home window replacement will make sense.
Here are five reasons why you might want to consider replacing your windows.
1. Your Windows are Damaged
This is likely the most obvious reason why you would want to consider window replacement. Windows do start to fail over time, and there will likely come a point when you will need to upgrade. Some signs that your windows are failing include large amounts of condensation or fog, leaks in the window that let drafts in, and opening and closing them becomes difficult.
If your windows start to exhibit these symptoms, then window replacement is likely a good option.
2. You Wish to Reduce Your Electric Bill
Window technology has really improved over the years, and windows are now more energy efficient than ever. If you live in an older home and have not upgraded your windows, you are likely losing large amounts of heat in the winter.
Single pane windows and damaged windows that let cold air into your home can drastically increase your energy bill. By upgrading to new energy efficient windows, you can save up to $500 a year in electric costs.
3.You Experience Severe Weather
Many people do not consider home window replacement until the damage is already done. But if you want to be proactive it is a good idea to think ahead and upgrade your windows before anything serious happens.
This is especially important if you live in areas that are known for bad weather. New fiberglass windows are more durable and will stand up to harsh conditions much better than older designs. These models are virtually maintenance-free and can save you a lot of repairs throughout the year.
4. You’re Remodeling Your Home
If you are remodeling your home, window replacement is an excellent way to upgrade the look and feel of your house. New windows not only look great, they are also generally more energy efficient and require less maintenance. Because of these benefits, installing new windows will often increase the value of your home.
5. You Want to Reduce Noise
Moisture and cold air aren’t the only things old windows let into your home. Single pane windows, and windows that do not seal properly, also let in a large amount of noise. If you live near a highway, or any other area that produces a lot of noise, you may want to consider window replacement to increase the amount of sound proofing inside your home.
