How to Tell When You Need New Windows

New Windows Kansas City, MO Replacing your house windows when they’ve run their course is important, as this will keep your Kansas City, Missouri, home looking and performing its best. But, how do you tell when the time has come for new windows? If you’re unsure whether you need to install replacement windows, consider whether you’ve noticed any of the following signs:

Unusually High Energy Bills

Oftentimes, climbing energy bills are an indication that you need new windows. Older windows lack the energy-efficient components that modern house windows are built with. Plus, all windows become less efficient as they age, which can lead to an increase in your heating and cooling costs in addition to making your home drafty and uncomfortable.

Condensation In Between the Window Panes

If you see condensation building up in between your window panes, it’s time for new windows. This type of condensation is a sign that the weather-stripping has failed – which can lead to leaking – and the windows need to be replaced.

Difficulty Operating Your Windows

Of course, if your windows aren’t working as they should, you may want to think about replacing them. If the windows stick, are difficult to open and close, or the locks don’t function properly, it’s likely time for new windows.

Excessive Wear & Tear

Cracked, warped, and faded frames all point to the need for a window replacement. In addition to being a cosmetic hindrance, wear and tear can be the first sign of a more serious problem, such as rot underneath the frames, so it’s important to address damage quickly.
