5 SIGNS IT’S TIME TO REPLACE YOUR WINDOWS
Replacing your windows is important for your home and could save you money on your energy bill. So, how do you know when it’s time? Here are 5 signs you should replace your windows!
Sign #1: Your home is in need of sprucing
As your home ages, so do the windows. When you get to the 15 or 20 year mark it may be time to think of replacing the windows not only for functionality, but also for a refresh to the home’s look!
Sign #2: It’s difficult to open and close your windows
Temporary fixes can tide you over but eventually it may get difficult to open and close your windows due to warped wood, corroded aluminum, and overall friction.
Sign #3: It’s feeling a bit chilly/warm
If you’re feeling a breeze that could mean the seal from your window could be broken. Time for new windows!
Sign #4: Your energy bill is climbing
If you notice your bill is higher every month it could mean your windows need replacing. You could reduce your bill by 10-15% by installing new energy efficient windows in your home.
Sign #5: There is condensation between the panes of glass
Usually in older homes you will find fog between your panes of glass, which indicates a broken seal. This is a sure sign for replacement, as condensation could lead to mold, posing a health risk as well.
If you are experiencing one or more of these signs, it could be time to replace the windows in your home. Ridley Windows & Doors is your one stop shop for window replacement, contact us now!
