Most homeowners have no idea how old their windows are. Even if they look okay from a distance, there could be telltale signs that they’re in dire need of replacement. Whether you’re living in an older home or are updating to make your house more energy-efficient, here are several warning signs your windows need some love. However, you don’t have to take this project on by yourself! Instead, turn to the professionals at Centennial Construction & Remodeling Service, Inc., for all of your window installation needs.
Is there a breeze coming through the frame around your windows? Do you see sunlight peeking through where it shouldn’t? If so, then you’ve got drafty windows that need to be replaced. Not only are these small cracks in the frame allowing the outside air in, but they are also forcing your air conditioner or furnace to work overtime, depending on the time of year.
2. Single Panes
In many older homes, single-pane windows still exist. Due to advances in window technology, we now know that single-pane windows are not efficient and lack any sort of soundproofing. Similar to cracks in a window frame, single-pane glass allows a lot of moisture, heat, and cold air into your home. Even with just one window, your air conditioner or furnace could struggle to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
3. Frame Decay
It’s not uncommon for wooden window frames to decay over time. This just means they’ll need to be replaced periodically to keep moisture and the outside temperature out of your home. Replacing wooden frames and windows will also ensure that mold doesn’t have a chance to grow within the rotting wood. You’ll also be protecting your home’s siding and framing by preventing water from seeping in where it’s not supposed to.
