Reasons to Replace Your Windows

16Jan

Your home’s windows are in place to not only keep stuff out but let stuff in! Your windows are a portal to everything you want to see outside but not feel. The weather in our Chicagoland region can range from steamy to windy, and the proper windows can make all of the difference. If you are weighing window replacement, check out some signs that it is time to make a move on this home improvement project.

That cool breeze: Sure, you want to feel the wind on your face if you are outside, but not when you are relaxing inside your home. Older and outdated windows can be leaky and allow in drafts that can circulate throughout your home and cause it to be too cold or too hot, depending on the season. Even if you do not see cracks in your glass, the wood or vinyl may have aged and is not sealing as well or has damage that is letting in outside air even when closed.

Higher bills: Besides normal increases in costs, have you noticed that your energy bills are bumped up? It could be because of your older windows. Not only are new ones going to be better as a barrier to the outside elements, but also the latest models of windows are way more energy-efficient with the latest innovations. Constant drafts can be prompting your furnace or air conditioner to run more often and cost you more money.

Single is a pain: If your older home still has single-pane windows in place, it is definitely time to update. With one pane, these windows are letting in lots of noise and air and not providing any level of energy efficiency.

Tough to operate: When your windows break down, they can be harder to open and close, no matter what type they are. Your hard-to-use windows are telling you it’s time for new ones.

Too much moisture: Condensation that is seen on your windows often means that they are not living up to their role anymore.

Too much noise: If your windows are not as good as they used to be, you will not only see it but also hear it. If you are hearing more noise in your home when your windows are closed, then they are probably aging and need to be updated.

Not looking so good: When you pull up to your home, are your eyes drawn to your windows? If they have become an eyesore due to visible damage or are just bringing down your home’s overall look and vibe, then you need to install a fresh new look. New windows will really level up your curb appeal more than you can imagine.
