Many homeowners have had the same windows since they first moved in. It can be tricky to know how old those windows are or if they’re still in good condition. Getting new windows might be a big investment, but it can lead to a lot of long-term benefits. Here are some ways to tell if your house is due for a window replacement.
It’s easy to forget how much windows can expose a house to the elements. Even if they are closed most of the time, your windows could be letting in water. Older windows tend to have a worn-out seal, which can allow water to leak in over time. If you notice dampness around your windows or signs of water stains or mold on the same wall, then you should consider having your windows replaced.
The same way that leaky windows can let in water, they can also let sounds in. Windows that are properly insulated will work as well if not better at blocking outside noise as the walls. And if you live by a busy road or have neighbors with loud dogs, then the noise can get annoying. Getting new windows can make a subtle but much-appreciated difference when it comes to getting better sleep at night.
Lastly, old windows will also let in a draft while also letting air out of your home. Because insulation is key for energy efficiency, then drafty windows cause energy to go to waste. The amount of money you’re paying in wasted heat and air conditioning on your energy bills could be saved when you replace your windows. Overall, new windows are well worth the investment.
