5 Signs that You Need to Replace Your Windows

5 Signs that You Need to Replace Your Windows

If you have plans of renovating your home in the near future and you are not sure whether to replace your windows or not, there are ways for you to determine if it is high time you did. Replacing windows, after all, can jack-up the cost of your renovation plans. This is why it is important that you know when you should replace these or if you can get away with not changing them yet.

There are signs that tell you if you should include replacement windows in your renovation plans. Before you splurge on that new set you’ve been eyeing, here are five indicators that you should include new windows in your renovation budget:

  • You are hearing noises from the outside – it’s natural to hear muffled sounds from outside, but if these are too loud and seems like your windows are open, then replacing these windows should be considered. Windows are supposed to help keep noise from the outside to a minimum. If it is not doing this, replacements are needed.
  • You have skyrocketing energy bills – if you are noticing a sudden spike in your energy bills, you might have drafty windows. These can let in warm or cold air from the outside enter your home, making your AC or heater work harder. These drafty windows can also leak heated and cooled air outside, making you crank up your HVAC, which translates to higher energy bills.
  • You have a hard time opening and closing them – when you find that your windows don’t open or close as easily as they used to, it is time to have these replaced. Windows that get stuck or don’t close properly indicate damage or rotting, and these should be replaced with new ones.
  • When you see condensation in between the layers of glass – if your home has windows with double panes, seeing condensation form in between those panes indicates a problem. It’s either there are cracks in them or the seals are failing. Either way, this means you need to replace your windows.
  • Your windows don’t look like part of your home – your windows could have been installed by a previous homeowner who wanted to experiment with different looks, or this was done without any advice from an architect or interior designer. Whatever the case may be, if you don’t like how your windows look, you can replace these.
