When Should You Have a Window Replacement?

There are numerous factors to consider before getting a window replacement project. Some are evident such as serious damage and drafty windows. But there are some cases where your windows appear fine but are causing your home to consume more and more energy as time goes on. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento, the top residential window contractor, shares the signs that tell you it’s time to have a window replacement.

When Should You Have a Window Replacement?

You Feel You Have Drafty Windows

As time goes on, you’ll feel that your windows become draftier, allowing the air in your home to escape outdoors. In turn, this causes your HVAC unit to work twice as hard to keep your home’s temperature at comfortable levels. As such, you’ll end up with higher monthly energy bills and could even cause your HVAC unit to break down even quicker due to the strain applied to it.

To find out if you have drafty windows, try to stand near them and see if you can feel the air outside pass through it. If this is the case, then you do have drafty windows. At this point, you should have a window replacement project to keep your home energy efficient and avoid overworking your HVAC unit.

Increased Condensation

If you notice moisture in between the glass panes of your windows, you might already have failed window seals. This isn’t an issue that’s simple to fix, but you definitely can replace the damaged panes. However, if you see moisture buildup in numerous windows, you’re better off having all of your windows replaced to get the most bang for your buck. It’s also important to hire a professional window replacement contractor to do the job so that you can get it done properly the first time around for maximum performance and efficiency.
