In this blog we will discuss the top signs that it may be time for new windows. Home improvements can be costly and easy to avoid until necessary. We will discuss the signs that it is time to replace your windows. So here is how to tell if you need new windows:
1. NOISE: If your windows are very noisy and you can hear all of the outside noise, this may be a sign you need new windows. Your windows may not be sealed correctly or were poorly made to begin with. With new triple pane windows made with argon glass, this can decrease the noise of the outdoors, especially if you live in a business neighborhood or by a busy road.
2. HIGH ENERGY BILLS: Windows provide some heat in the winter by letting in sunlight. Drafty windows can cause your energy bills to be about 10 to 25 percent higher according to energy.gov. New Windows for America offers energy-efficient windows that can reduce your heating and cooling bills.
3. MAINTENANCE: If you are sick of all the maintenance that old windows require, it may be time to consider new ones. New windows will benefit not only for their appearance but their longevity. Customers love our windows because of how easy they are to clean as well as the appearance and durability.
4. RETURN ON INVESTMENT: A great way to boost the resale value of your home is investing in new windows. Windows are a long-term investment, with the right windows they should last a very long time without needing to be repaired or replaced. A new window replacement project adds around 80 percent of its total cost to the home value.
5. CONDENSATION OR CRACKS: If you are noticing frosting between the layers of glass this means that the seals are not working properly. Once the seals have failed any insulating gas used to make the window energy efficient is now gone. Cracked windows also allow additional spots for air to leak in and out of your window.
