How Can You Tell If Your Home Needs New Windows?

Your windows perform many essential tasks, including providing ventilation, letting in sunlight and preventing bad weather from affecting your home’s interior. They also contribute to your home’s energy efficiency and act as an important design element. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to your windows and be on the lookout for the following three signs shared by A & A Services Home Improvement in order to determine when you’ll need to plan your window replacement project:

How Can You Tell If Your Home Needs New Windows?

Water Infiltration

Leaks around your windows mean they can no longer shut tight to keep the weather out. The moisture that will then be able to seep in through your windows can cause mold and mildew issues, and also make your home feel uncomfortable due to an increase in humidity. In addition, the water can damage critical components of your window, including your window frames. If multiple windows suffer from this problem, then it’s time to schedule a replacement.

Condensation Problems

The severity of the condensation problem depends on where it forms. For example, if it develops along the bottom of the glass, it could indicate that your window has ventilation problems. You can remedy this by keeping the window open or running a dehumidifier. However, if you see condensation between the window’s glass panes, it means that the seal has already failed and your window is no longer energy efficient. At this point, it’s time to start planning a window replacement project. Fortunately, A & A Services Home Improvement offers a wide range of replacement windows.

Drafts

When you start to feel drafts through your window, this is an indication that the weatherstripping has peeled off or there are gaps, cracks and other damage to your window components. Drafts will reduce your home’s energy efficiency and lead to higher energy bills, so while adding caulk around the window or replacing the window frame can serve as a short-term solution, it’s better to prevent the drafts permanently. A new window will take care of this problem and improve your home’s energy efficiency as well.
