Many homeowners are blissfully unaware about how old their windows are. But, old windows could be damaging to their home. In fact, even if your windows aren’t too old, they can end up causing issues if they aren’t installed properly either. Here are a few signs that your home needs brand-new windows.
Feeling A Little Drafty
Feeling a draft? Your windows may need an upgrade. Can you always hear the wind whistling through your window? Can you always feel a cold wind coming from the window? If your windows are causing a draft, it’s time to fix that with brand-new windows. Otherwise, you’ll have to spend a fortune on heating and cooling costs — which no one wants.
Increase In Energy Costs
Speaking of money, if you are actually noticing an increase in the amount of money you are spending on your energy bills, it could mean there is an issue with your windows. The reality is, sometimes, a little draft may go unnoticed until you see a hefty utility bill. Take the time to consider putting your hard-earned money into new windows instead of unnecessary utility bills.
Single Pane Windows
Do you still have single-pane windows in your home? It’s probably time for an upgrade. Single pane windows provide absolutely zero insulation or any soundproofing. They also lack any energy efficiency, which can be harmful to your bottom line. Making the investment to upgrade your windows can really do wonders for not just your home, but your energy bills as well.
Bad Window Operation
If opening your windows is a struggle, it may be time to get new ones. Opening and closing your windows shouldn’t have to be a large part of your daily workout routine. It should be easy and seamless to crack a window open in your home. If it’s harder than you’d like, it might be a sign that it’s time to invest in new windows to secure your home and give you a little break from straining too much.
