When is best to replace your windows? Here is a quick guide to help you understand the benefits of new windows.
Seal Failure: Have you ever noticed fog, mist or condensation within your current panes of glass? If yes, this is a sign that the seals are failing. This will leave an opening for moisture to enter, and this, in turn, causes the condensation or fog look meaning the glass is no longer working as an insulator.
Feeling a Draught? Your windows may be made of the best materials and receive the best of care, but it’s not possible to prevent the ageing process. Feeling the draught is one of the biggest indicators that your windows are failing. Over time, as seals and fixings age, they start to wear, meaning that they gradually let more air in. Window frames also contribute to draughts. They may show signs of rot or general deterioration which can be another cause of air penetration.
Problems with opening and closing: If your windows are able to move freely (meaning they can slam shut) this can pose a hazard and damage the glass. Rot and rust are a major factor that affects the opening and closing of older windows. Balance may also play a part, especially in older single or double hung windows.
Noise: Efficient windows should keep noise in and reduce noise from outside. If you are noticing more noise from outside, your windows may no longer be working as a sound dampener.
All of these factors can contribute to higher energy bills. One of the biggest benefits of replacement windows is the quality and effectiveness in being energy efficient and reducing costs.
