As windows age, they start shrinking, breaking, and not closing properly, allowing air from inside your home to flow out. As a result of this, your HVAC system struggles to keep your home at a constant temperature and sends your energy bills skyrocketing. If your home is noticeable more drafty or your electric/gas bills seem to be going up this fall for no apparent reason, you may want to have your windows checked out.
Difficult to Lock
We enjoy having our windows open when the weather is nice, but they shouldn’t be open all of the time. During the winter and when we’re not home, your windows should be shut in place and locked, right? Windows with malfunctioning locks is a major security risk that should be remedied as soon as possible to keep your family safe. Often the lock can be repaired inexpensively, but if the window is having trouble staying open/shut or is leaking air, it may be best to simply install a new one.
The largest sign that you need new windows is when condensation starts to form on the inside of your window when it is shut and locked. This is indicative of a likely irreparable flaw and should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent the growth of mold in the frame, which can spread to other areas of your home and cause serious damage when left untreated.
