Inefficient or drafty windows can significantly increase your heating and cooling costs. This is because they allow conditioned or heated air to escape your home. Replacing these units with energy-efficient ones can significantly improve your indoor comfort and minimize energy loss.
When Do You Need to Replace Your Windows?
Your windows can sustain damage from harsh weather events or accidents, such as getting hit by a baseball. When these instances happen, you may need to have your windows replaced. Moreover, like any component for your home, your windows will eventually need to be replaced. If your windows are at least two decades old, you may want to start considering replacing them. Old windows that have broken seals, defective hardware and difficult operation should definitely be replaced.
How Many Windows Should You Replace?
You don’t have to replace all of your windows at once, but you might save money doing so. You can set a timeline that best fits your needs. However, safety should be your top priority. Damaged windows that are putting your family at risk should be replaced first. Focus on inoperable windows or units with mold or rot around the frames and broken glass.
