Sometimes it is difficult to know when the right time for replacing windows is, but after answering some of these questions you should be closer to making an informed decision on the matter.
1)Are your windows single pane glass?
Much of the time when homes have the original windows we find single pane glass windows. The problem is single pane is not energy efficient. They often feel cold to the touch and even develop frost on the inside of the window
2)Is your home have a lot of noise pollution?
This isn’t a question of young kids running around not using their inside voices or someone having the TV volume too high. We’re talking about street noise and even airplane noise. Replacing single pane windows with double pane windows can reduce exterior noise transmission into your home.
3)Do you have storm windows?
Annually reinstalling your storm windows is quite a hassle and can be dangerous on multilevel homes. This time consuming procedure is enough for many people to make the switch.
4)Do your windows leak air or water?
It isn’t a good situation when your windows let the elements inside without so much as a fight. Water coming through the windows can lead to mold and gaps can lead to drafts. This also leads to higher energy costs.
5)Do your windows function properly?
Older windows can start developing issues. These issues include opening and closing problems, locking issues, and seal issues.
