Do you feel a draft around the house even with all the windows and doors closed? Chances are, the problem lies with the windows of your house. With age, your windows can show signs of decay and disrepair and this can result in any number of problems around the house. Good quality windows can, however, last for more than 20 years with regular and proper maintenance.

 

If your house and windows are more than a decade old, you may want to look for these common signs that show that your windows need replacement:

Your Windows are Showing Signs of Damage and Disrepair

The most common indicator of windows in need of replacement, even the most minor of damage to your windows can cause a larger amount of damage in the future. A single crack can spread until it’s encompassing the whole window and making it brittle and susceptible to easy breaking.

Windows getting stuck while opening and closing can be sending a signal for repair. Even if a simple repair could do the job, it is almost always advisable to replace old and broken windows altogether to avoid the damage from costing far more in the future. 

Your Windows are Drafty

Did you know that 30% of all energy spent in the residential sector is used for heating and cooling spaces?

The major culprit for this high percentage of resources spent on temperature control is drafty and old windows. With a constant draft flitting in through the gaps of your window, maintaining a stable temperature can consume more energy, thus also increasing energy consumption bills.

This problem can easily be solved by installing energy efficient windows. These are specifically designed to control indoor temperatures better, reducing energy expended on maintaining steady temperatures inside the house.

They’ve started to look ancient

Perhaps you’ve recently remodeled the interior of your house, but don’t feel the newness of the brand new interior. Your old windows are putting a damper on what could have been a perfectly modern, chic house.

If your windows have started looking worn, the paint has started chipping off, or the color just isn’t right for your new interior, you may want to consider investing in a new set of windows. Installing larger, more energy efficient windows can make your house look more inviting, all the while saving precious energy and money.

They Don’t Block Out Outside Noise

If you’re living in the city, you are probably constantly faced with roadside traffic noises like car horns, sirens and the like. These can wreak havoc on your peace of mind and at times can even keep you up all night.

Part of the job of windows is to block out outside noise when closed, and if your windows aren’t doing their job, you might want to consider replacing them.

They are posing security risks

Old windows also pose security threats as older models of windows were not particularly built to be resistant to intruders. Investing in double paned, safety glass can greatly enhance the security of your house and make it harder for intruders to get in.
