How do you know when your windows need replacing? Sometimes it can be hard to tell on the surface, but there may be some underlying issues that need repair or replacement. The experts at Window World of New Orleans have put together a list of three tell-tale signs that it’s time for you to think about replacing your windows.
- An Increase in Your Energy Bills – If unwanted air is creeping into your living space, it could be compromising the energy efficiency of your home. If you notice a rise in your heating and cooling bills, it might be time to consider utilizing energy efficient windows from Window World of New Orleans. By adding Low-E glass to a standard insulating glass unit, you can improve the energy performance in your window year round by as much as 24%!
- Cracks in the Frames – If you have wooden frames, chances are they’ve suffered from warping over time, causing unattractive cracks in your window’s appearance. These cracks are not only unsightly, but can cause moisture to creep in and cause serious problems over time such as molding and rotting.
- Noticeable Drafts in Your Home – This may seem like an obvious sign, but if you stand next to your window and you feel hot or cold air, it could mean that your window isn’t properly insulated. This causes energy loss in the interior of your home and makes it hard for you and your family to stay comfortable inside.
