Ignoring problems with your home’s damaged or faulty windows can cost you. Replacing them might seem expensive, but it can ultimately save you money. With today’s highly energy-efficient windows and modern designs, there are plenty of cost-saving, aesthetic and functional advantages to replacing windows. To help determine if it’s time to replace your windows, we’ve put together a couple things to consider.
Do they need to be replaced?
If your windows aren’t performing as they should, you’ll often feel it, and you’re losing money. If opening and closing is difficult, if air leaks in, out or around the window, or condensation or fogging occurs on or between glass panes then the heat or air conditioning you’re paying for is slipping outside. Drafty windows can be more expensive than new ones.
Will they improve energy efficiency?
Replacing old single-pane windows with today’s energy-efficient double- or triple-pane glazing can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs. When the wind stops cutting straight through the glass, you’ll recognize the difference.
To add to overall energy efficiency, choose products that have qualified for the Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® standards. These windows are proven to get the job done and keep your house properly protected.
What else should you know?
Windows can deteriorate at different rates due to differences in sunlight and weather exposure, so while one side of your home is fine, the other may need attention.
If the sizes of your original windows are no longer available, special windows can be manufactured to your specific size and style needs.
