Is it time to replace your windows? Window replacement is a big investment, but it can improve your home in a myriad of ways. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Austin shares four reasons it might be time to replace your windows.
Water Is Seeping Through
Windows are designed to give you a view of the outside while keeping rain out. If your windows are no longer in good shape, rainwater can easily seep through small cracks caused by problems such as poor frame fitting or deterioration. Windows that no longer help keep the water out have to be replaced immediately to prevent further moisture damage in your home.
Your House Is Drafty
When your siding patio doors and windows are closed, they’re supposed to prevent indoor air from seeping out and outdoor air from getting in. Otherwise, your HVAC has to work overtime and consume more energy to maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home. If your home is perpetually drafty, your windows are likely the culprit. Replacing them will solve the problem.
Your Furniture Is Faded
If you notice faded spots in your furniture, it could be because your windows are not properly blocking UV rays from entering your home. Fortunately, low-E glass can help reduce the amount of UV rays that enter your home, protecting your furniture, curtains and carpet from fading.
Your Electric Bills Are Too High
Does it seem like your electricity bills keep going up and up? This could be a sign that you need a replacement door or new windows ASAP. Old windows tend to lose their ability to keep your home insulated, causing leaks that force your HVAC to use up more power. For best results, get replacements that have energy-efficient features such as Fibrex frames or Low-E glass.
