Reasons Why it’s the Perfect Time to Replace Windows

Oct 30, 2014

Replacing the windows on your home can be a major investment but it is an improvement that will benefit your home in a number of ways for many years to come. The windows of your home not only contribute to the exterior look of the house but they also have the ability to improve a number of important considerations inside the home as well such as benefits in the form of reduced energy costs, less noise transmission and ease of maintenance both inside and out. If your home is more than 15 years old, it could be time to talk to the window experts at Continental Siding.

Signs that it’s Time to Consider Replacement Windows

Misty Condensation on Windows

If you wake up to find your windows fogged over or covered in condensation, that’s a sign that the seals on your window have failed. Broken seals allow moist air to collect between the window panes and fog up the glass. Once condensation appears on a window, it will generally continue to grow, covering a larger and larger area of the window.

Single Paned Windows

These days if your windows are not Energy Star-approved, you are allowing your indoor heating and cooling to escape through your windows to the outdoors. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection agency estimates that by replacing the single-pane windows in your home with Energy Star replacement windows, homeowners can save an estimated $501 each year. The double-pane windows also add an insulating aspect so the replacement windows are actually warmer to the touch and there’s less potential for frost and condensation on the inner pane.

Lack of a Sound Barrier

In addition to visibility, windows should also provide a buffer from outside noises such as children playing outside, lawn mowers and planes flying overhead. Double pane replacement windows can provide an extra measure of peace and quiet to the inside of the home.

Furnishings Show Fading from the Sun

Once you’ve found the perfect color of wall paint or rug, you don’t want it to fade from the sunlight. Single pane windows allow ultra violet rays to penetrate into the home where they can fade the carpet, furnishings, artwork and walls.
