If you have started wondering if it is time for replacement windows, but you are not quite sure, then we suggest asking yourself these questions. The answers to those questions will give you a good idea if now is the time to make the replacement. Once you have determined that you do need windows, call Progressive Insulation & Windows at (800) 500-6200 to get started.
Do You See Condensation in Your Windows?
If you have seen condensation between the panes of your windows, this is a strong sign that you should replace your windows. When moisture gets between these panes, that is a sign that the seal is no longer working – and this is something that is very costly and difficult to replace. Instead, it best to replace the windows with new ones that will not have these leaks.
Have You Noticed Drafts in Your Home?
One of the most noticeable signs that you need to replace your windows is drafts. If you can feel air coming in from the outside, then you have drafts. Remember that energy loss through windows can account for about 33% of your heating and cooling costs. Replace your windows and watch your home’s energy efficiency increase.
Your Windows Are Hot to the Touch When It’s Warm Out
When you’re in the middle of summer, and it’s as hot as it gets, touch your window. If it is outdated and in need of replacement, then it will have little protection from the hot air outside. If it is hot to touch, then it is not well insulated. We strongly recommend that you replace those outdated windows with newer, better-insulated windows.
Your Windows Are Cold to Touch in Colder Weather
The same principle applies in winter – if your windows are cold to the touch, then it is likely time to replace them. Note that there is a difference between being cool and being cold. If you touch them and they are slightly cool, and you have not noticed any drafts, then they might not need to be replaced. However, if they are actively cold, then you know they are not providing the protection they should from the outside elements.
