Time for a Window Replacement? Here’s How to Tell

The Importance of Windows

Windows are often taken for granted and overlooked. They offer much benefit to the home, including added sunlight, ventilation, temperature control, and aesthetic appeal. But how do you know when they need to be replaced? Here’s a quick guide to help you decide if it’s time.

Your Windows Are Damaged

A minor window problem, like worn weather stripping, may only need a repair. However, a window or window frame that is deformed, warped, or cracked should be replaced rather than repaired. A damaged window doesn’t have to present with obvious signs like a large hole or crack. For example, if your windows fog, let in outside air, feel stuck when you attempt to open or close them, or require additional support to remain open, then it’s time for a replacement.

Your Energy Bill is Unusually High

While windows help let in winter sunlight, warming your home and reducing the amount of heat used, they also can be the culprit of energy loss. If your energy bill shows a rise of 10–25%, replace your windows with energy-efficient windows. Not only do they improve the market value of your home, they also improve your energy bill by offering insulated glass.

You Are Remodeling Your Home

The condition of the windows sets the tone for the rest of the home. If they are worn, warped, or faded, your home’s curb appeal suffers. Consider choosing a window that compliments and accents the current style of your home. If you desire more air flow, change from a fixed sash to an openable window. If your home is dim, a larger window is the best option to increase light naturally.

If your home needs window replacement, HB Home Services can help. Contact us today!
