You most likely don’t sit around thinking about your windows all day long, especially when you live in San Diego, CA. But every home is going to need new windows at some point and as the homeowner, it is a good idea to understand when you need replacement windows. Here are a few reasons you might need them.
…Your Windows Don’t Operate Properly
If your windows won’t open at all or get stuck in the open position, it is time to look into new windows. Windows that don’t operate properly aren’t doing their job and are a potential risk to your family. Malfunctioning windows no longer have an efficient seal. This means that they may leak air and/or moisture. Windows that do not open when necessary are blocking a potential exit in case of emergency.
…Your Windows Are Cracked or Broken
If the window frames are cracked or water damaged or the glass is broken, you should look into replacement windows. Windows that are cracked or broken in any way are not structurally sound. They are likely affecting your heating and cooling bills and create a very unattractive aesthetic for your home.
…Your Utility Bill Keeps Rising
One of the biggest reasons people choose replacement windows is because they want to save energy and money. When you install replacement windows, you are getting windows that are more technologically advanced than your old windows. They work more effectively and efficiently and they can help you save energy, which passes over into money savings on your utility bills.
…Your Windows Look Old and Worn
If your old windows are ruining the aesthetic appeal of your house, it might be time for an update. Replacement windows can make all the difference in the world in the look and feel of your home. If your windows look old, chances are they have other issues as well. You can increase your energy efficiency and update your style at the same time.
…Your Windows Leak Air
If you are sitting on the couch and feel a draft on your neck from the window behind you, your windows are leaking air. When air is getting inside your home, you’d better believe it’s leaking out as well. The air you are trying to control through your heating and air conditioning is leaking out instead of keeping you comfortable inside. You are wasting money and energy and your HVAC system has to work harder.
