Have you been thinking it’s time to replace your windows? Are you wondering what signs you should look for when it comes to having replacement windows installed? There are times that your windows can be repaired if it just needs weather stripping or even hardware. However, there are times where it just isn’t worth trying to repair the window; there is nothing you can do to fix it, or in the end, financially it makes more sense to replace them. So, let’s take a moment and check out what those reasons may be.
Too damaged to repair
Plain and simple, there comes a point in your window’s lifespan where it’s to costly to not replace them. If they are damaged beyond repair, warped, or even broken, it is best to have replacement windows installed. Some things you can look for when deciding if it’s time to replace them are the following: windows fogging up, too drafty, sticks when you try to open or close them, or don’t want to stay open.
More energy efficient
Depending on how old your windows are, it could make more sense financially to just change your windows out. The windows on the market nowadays are more energy efficient and in the end can reduce your energy bill. You may not know this, but a drafty window can cause your energy bill to be about 10-25% higher. Just imagine how much money is going out the window…literally.
