Continue reading for signs you should replace your windows and the many great benefits you’ll receive by tackling this project.
It’s difficult to open, close, and lock the windows.
If a window is old, rusty, rotten, or poorly installed, it will probably become difficult to open and close. Your home’s safety will decrease if you can’t properly close, and, therefore, lock the windows.
There’s a draft – even with the windows closed.
Do you feel a breeze even if the windows are closed? If so, the windows are either old or poorly installed. A drafty window can drastically change the temperature in your home and cause the air conditioning system to work more than it normally would. This will increase your energy bill or cause it to fluctuate.
You hear a lot of outside noise.
If you hear a lot of outside noise in your home, there’s a great chance it has to do with your windows. Issues including windows with single pane glass, faulty seals, and poor installation can lead to external sounds traveling through your house.
