Signs It’s Time for a Window Replacement

Windows are important design elements, but they are also part of your home’s thermal envelope, which acts as a barrier between the interior and exterior. Time, however, can take a toll on your window’s health, affecting their energy efficiency and functionality. When this happens, it might be a good idea to replace them altogether.

Handyman Connection® of Grapevine discusses the signs that your current windows are due for replacement.

Curb Appeal

As one of the most noticeable features of your home, your windows have to remain intact and damage-free. Broken frames or glass won’t help keep your home’s charm, especially this holiday season. Rule of thumb: pick a window style that will complement the existing components of your living space. For instance, double-hung windows are a perfect choice if you have a traditional home. Picture windows, on the other hand, can match modern homes due to their wide glass area.

Energy Efficiency

Windows eventually become drafty, but many people don’t realize how this can affect their home’s energy efficiency. In a recent study, drafts passing through your windows can cause a 10–25% increase in your energy bills. To avoid this problem, get in touch with a local contractor that offers energy-efficient windows. Most windows nowadays have low-emissivity glass that blocks the worst of ultraviolet rays.

Functionality

You shouldn’t have a hard time opening or closing your windows. Consider a window replacement if you need to oil or clean your windows to crank them open or shut them close. You should also invest in this home improvement project if your hinged windows are affecting your home’s high-traffic areas. Install windows with compact design, such as sliding, double-hung, or picture windows.
