  • There are window companies who act as if replacing your windows is as simple and cheap as replacing your drapes.

    In reality, window replacement is expensive and time consuming.

    A company might be able to complete the job in one day if they have a large crew. However, it is a waste of time and money to replace the windows unless it is actually necessary.

Your electric bill is sky high

Notes:

  • If your energy bills are too high, you can start to bring it down by checking the thermostat. Seal up your home such as closing the doors more often, sealing gaps under the door or around the window frames, and turning off the lights when not in use.
  • Check your hot water heater settings, and make sure there aren’t water leaks in the wall that ruin the insulation value of the insulation in your walls.
  • If you’ve been doing everything imaginable to lower your energy bills and they remain high, then you can start looking windows.

If your window doesn’t have condensation

Notes:

  • Heating and air conditioning account for up to half of the average home’s energy bills, and much of that is lost through your windows. You can limit the losses through the windows by putting up insulated drapes.
  • If that’s not good enough, consider putting in windows with extra insulation. This may take the form of triple pane windows, or it may be double pane windows with light filtering membranes that let natural light in without letting heat enter.
  • If the window frames are letting moisture or cold air enter your home, the windows may need to be replaced entirely to fix the problem. This is especially true if weather stripping and caulking keep coming off the gaps you’re trying to seal.

Your windows were damaged

Notes:

  • We often forget how many people need replacement windows because their windows were damaged. A shifting foundation can crack your windows, causing them to leak air conditioned air to the outdoors.
  • Wait until you’ve leveled the foundation before you get new windows.
  • If your windows were broken by vandals or a thunderstorm, you probably need replacement windows. You can get new windows that are more durable and energy efficient.

Your home needs a makeover

Notes:

  • We’re not going to suggest replacing your windows when you are simply redecorating. However, if your home is undergoing a major renovation, you may want to replace your home at the same time.
  • If you’re having siding replaced, fixing the brickwork or altering the structural walls of your home, this is a good time to replace the windows. New energy efficient windows can be a selling point for your home, but that’s only true if you had single or basic double pane windows in the first place.
  • Don’t replace all the windows hoping to recoup the cost. Replacing the front door and cleaning the exterior of the home will matter more.
