New windows can do a lot for a house. They add light, beauty, and value, in addition to the appearance of larger rooms. Energy efficient windows can also save money on your monthly utility bills - keeping warm air in, and cold air out. (Or vice versa, depending on the season.) Plus, as an added bonus, new windows are easier to clean!
If your windows are 15-30 years old, you might start noticing a host of problems, including:
If any of these problems show up, it is time to get replacement windows! When your windows start to leak, it can ruin wood trim, furniture or carpet that is directly below or near it. Drafts can really decrease the efficiency of your home, with heat loss accounting for as much as 25% of your heating/cooling bills according to the U.S Department of Energy.
Replacement windows can last for a long time; aluminum windows are expected to last about 20 years, while wooden windows with the proper care can last 30 years.
