Your home’s windows are one of the most important pieces of your home’s exterior. They provide a number of benefits, including keeping your home protected from the elements, pests, and potential intruders, as well as boosting your home’s curb appeal and resale value. However, most importantly, they provide your home with light and ventilation. Your windows are constantly exposed to the elements, which causes them to deteriorate over time, but sometimes it can still be difficult to tell if they need to be replaced. Take a look at our guide to learn about signs your windows need to be replaced that you may have missed!
One of the most obvious signs that your windows need to be replaced is when you begin to feel a draft. While it may not be much of an issue during the warmer months, when fall and winter roll around, having drafty windows can lead to significant energy loss that will show up on your home’s heating bill. If you notice that your windows have a significant draft, consider replacing them to reduce your energy costs.
Difficult To Operate
Another sign that you need to replace your windows is when they begin to be difficult to operate. If it feels like you need to break out the WD-40 just to operate your home’s windows, it’s time to replace them. From jamming your fingers in the frame, to not being able to close them when you need to, having sticky windows can be a dangerous nuisance, and you should replace them as soon as possible.
Another sign that your windows need to be replaced is when you can clearly hear outside noise even though the window is closed. While you may not always notice a drafty window without being right next to it, if you can clearly hear your neighbor’s conversation across the street even though your window is completely closed and locked, it means there is an air leak somewhere that is allowing outside noise and air into your home. Replacing your home’s windows will not only make your home more efficient, it will provide you with a better night’s sleep!
