Though some signs of window damage can be obvious to the eye, it is not always noticeable. No one is thinking about the state of their windows daily. However, windows do not last forever. There should be a few things you are keeping your eye on when it comes to the windows in your home. They may look great, but they could be causing some damage to the inside of your home. Here are the most common signs that your windows need to be replaced.
Drafts/ High Energy Bills
If you are experiencing drafts of wind coming in through your window, it is a sign they should be replaced. Drafts could be caused by a plethora of reasons such as cracks or poor installation. If you are not necessarily feeling a draft but you do notice that your energy bill is skyrocketing, it is a clear indication that cold air is coming through your window, causing your HVAC to work overtime and potentially doubling the costs.
Difficulty Opening and Closing
Having difficulties operating your windows does indicate that you need to replace your windows sooner rather than later. Typically, when your windows are hard to open and close, it means that they were not installed correctly to begin with. It is important to replace these windows for safety reasons. Your windows could be the best way out of your home in an emergency situation, and it is not safe not to be able to open them seamlessly.
Condensation tends to build in between the frames of your windows. If this is happening regularly, it could mean new windows are in your near future. Constant condensation between frames could lead to mold growth, something no homeowner wants to deal with. If you notice consistent moisture in your windows, it is unfortunately time to get them replaced.
