When to Replace Your House Windows

July 14th, 2014 October 23, 2013

How do you know when it’s really time to make an investment in new house windows? The following are a few reasons you may want to consider it.

1. Energy efficiency and savings:  Does it seem hard to maintain the temperature in your home?  Is your AC or heat always running, even on more temperate days?  When your house windows are not insulating well, it can be worth the upgrade to save on energy bills.  Similarly, if you feel a draft, hear a whistling noise coming through the window, or see fogging in the glass, these are signs that your seal has failed and your window is not doing its job well.

2. Appearance and ease of use:  Often, people just get tired of the look of their old windows and want the more updated, well-maintained look new windows provide.  Another motivator is when the old windows become very difficult to use.  When windows don’t function well, not only is it a pain, but it can also be dangerous in a fire or other emergency situation.

3. Selling your home:  Many potential homebuyers are turned off by old windows – both by their appearance and by the higher energy bills. So if you’re looking to sell, it may be worth updating your house windows, especially if you need to be competitive. New windows will give your home the edge over other homes helping it to sell quickly.
