6 reasons why you should replace your windows
So, while you could put off replacing windows until they leak or even crumble in your hand (we’ve heard stories), there are other signs that indicate it’s time to get new windows.
1. They don't open properly
Not only is this frustrating, but it can also be a safety concern in the event of a fire. If your windows are hard to open or don’t stay open on their own, this indicates that something within the window may be warped or broken and that it’s time to replace.
2. You’re feeling a draft or extra chilly around your windows
If you’ve ever tried to get comfortable next to drafty windows, you know how frustrating it can be. Not only that, but drafty windows can also cause your energy bills to go up since your home has to work harder to maintain your desired temperature. An easy fix is looking for ENERGY STAR® certified windows, and ones specifically designed to filter UV light.
3. There’s fog between the glass
Note: Condensation on the inside of your windows is a common issue related to moisture and is not a window failure.
4. You want to make your home healthier
5. You want to improve your view
6. You want to boost your curb appeal
