Even with the utmost care, the windows of your home may get damaged over time. Factors such as poor installation, weather, and general wear and tear could affect the integrity of your windows. As a result, sooner or later, you’d need services for window replacement.
Below are the 5 telltale signs that you need window replacement services:
Increasing energy bills
If you have noticed that your energy bills are unusually high, your windows might be the culprit. Old single-pane windows often do not have insulating properties, which forces your central heating to work hard to compensate for the lost heat from your windows. The same is true with damaged double pane windows whose insulation properties are underperforming.
In the same manner, your AC unit has to replace the cold air that has escaped due to the deteriorating insulating properties of damaged windows.
Worn out windows
Age, moisture, extreme weather, and bad window maintenance are common causes of worn-out windows. If you observe chipping, cracks, molds, and decay, have your windows replaced immediately.
If you notice excessive “sweat” in double glazed windows during cold days, it could be that the glazing and gas fill of your windows are not anymore working. Broken seals could become openings for warm air to enter the glass panes. And when the warm air hits the cold glass, condensation results.
Do you feel chilly when you walk past some windows of your home even when the whole house is heated centrally? The cold air you feel comes from the windows resulting from worn off or failing seals. Outside air has found its way to your house and influenced the temperature of the air. If this happens, it’s time to replace your windows immediately. Even when the heat is on, drafty windows would make your home bitterly cold.
Audible outside noise
Do you still hear outside noises inside your home even when your windows are closed? It could be that something is wrong with the sound insulation of your windows. Reliable window installers such as HTR Windows can replace your windows with the most effective sound insulation properties to reduce sound transfer.
