Your windows are more than just glass panes that let you view the outdoors—they also contribute greatly to your home’s energy efficiency, your indoor comfort, and the overall aesthetic appearance of your home. Old, worn down windows can negatively impact your home in many ways. In today’s post, we share four warning signs that mean it’s time to contact window companies to replace your current windows:
1. Soaring Energy Bills
When windows get old and leaky, they lose their ability to keep the outside air from entering your interior, while also letting the air inside escape. As a result, your HVAC system has to guzzle energy to compensate, leading to a spike in energy bills.
2. Decreased Visibility
Your windows should provide a crisp and clear view of the outdoors. Windows with minimal visibility distort your view and also lower your home’s curb appeal. When you can barely see out of your windows, it’s time to contact your trusted contractor for quality replacement windows.
3. Difficult to Open and Close
Windows in prime condition should open and shut with ease. A window that requires massive effort to open or close is not only a major headache—it can also be a safety issue.
4. Rotting Windows
Rotting windows are hard to miss, which is exactly the problem. They make your home unsightly and can reduce its value and appeal. Schedule an immediate window replacement project when you notice rot in your windows.
5. Windows Look Outdated
Don’t let your windows drag down the beauty of your home. Your windows should complement and even enhance the overall aesthetics of your house. If they don’t, it’s time to shop for replacements.
