Window Replacement: What are the Signs You Need One?

As expensive as it may be, there will probably come a time when you need to replace your windows, if you own an old home. If your home has become drafty and uncomfortable during the winter and difficult to keep cool during the summer, you may be experiencing the symptoms of windows that have lived past their expiration date. Nevertheless, it pays to know the signs.

When it becomes harder to keep the elements out of your home because your windows aren't up to the job anymore, you'll be able to tell.

In fact, you'll probably even see a rise in your utility bill all around, because it will be more difficult to heat and cool your home.

Sweaty Windows

If your windows have started to sweat at different times they're talking to you loud and clear. They're telling you that they can no longer effectively keep moisture out. Moisture equals mold and mold equal poor air quality, none of which are good. When windows have become old and tired they give you plenty of signs that they are ready for an upgrade. You won't need a catalyst screening system to determine this either.


As the sun beats down on your home during the hottest part of the summer, your windows should be an effective barrier against solar heat. However, if they aren't, you'll be sweating to the oldies inside your home. Your little HVAC system may run tirelessly but your home may still not cool adequately. Windows with drafty cracks, holes, and poor sealing just won't be able to adequately fight Father summer.

Your windows are an important part of your home. When they stop doing what they are supposed to do, which is keep the elements out, it can wreak havoc on everything from your comfort level to your utility bills. Become familiar with the signs of tired worn out windows and give them a proper burial. New windows will solve many of the problems you are having with draftiness and heat and get those utility bills back down where they are supposed to be.
