Old windows don’t offer your homes as much protection and energy efficiency. You have to replace them if they have decreased in performance or are experiencing leaks. But how do you know it’s time to replace your windows?
How Often Should You Replace Windows
Properly maintained windows can last for more than 20 years. However, you should start thinking about replacing them if they have passed this mark.
With new windows, you’ll experience a significant improvement in your home’s comfort. It will also be easier to keep your living spaces cool in summer and warm in winter. High-quality replacement windows can reduce your energy bills by up to 20%.
Aside from your window, you should also consider replacing your old sliding French doors. At Renewal by Andersen® of Arkansas, we offer stylish French doors with multiple panes for added protection and aesthetic appeal. We create doors with Fibrex® frame material to give them the look of natural wood but without the regular upkeep.
When to Get the Job Done
There are different indicators that you need to replace your old windows. Aging windows are likely to have drafts, which can increase your energy bills. You’ll notice that your electricity costs are getting higher when your windows are failing.
Over time, double-hung windows become harder to operate. Condensation between the panes of a double-pane window can be a sign that the seal is broken and moisture has entered the panes. This makes your window no longer efficient.
