Most Houston homeowners have been informed about the money-saving advantages of energy efficient replacement windows from Superior Window Company. Those same homeowners also know getting replacement windows is not an inexpensive task. In fact, the high cost of installing replacement windows is what can cause homeowners to put off this project time and time again, even when the windows clearly need to be replaced. Not sure what the signs are that you need replacement windows? Let’s break a few down real quick.
- Draftiness or Ghost?
No that’s not Casper the friendly ghost breezing by you. If you feel a brisk breeze floating through your home during the cold winter months it could be coming from a small crack in the window glass or the frame. It could also be the seals, they do eventually wear out and crack and either way show an aging window.
- Skyrocketing Energy Bill?
If you notice your electric bill going higher and higher but your heating and cooling habits haven’t changed, it’s a sure sign of aging windows.
- Cold Glass?
If you have single-pane windows, they will always be cold to the touch as single pane windows are the worst at energy efficiency and heat transfer. If you have double pane windows, they should feel only slightly cold when the temperature outside is very cold.
- Paint and Repair?
When windows are so old, that the paint is peeling away or has cracks,or especially if the wood frame is rotting out and generally falling apart. it becomes cost prohibitive to keep painting and repairing these windows. Save money and get new replacement windows instead.
- Sticky Windows?
Wood windows often stick to the frame after many layers of paint. When the foundation of your Houston home settles, window frames get a slight bend or twist. When that happens, the window sash can’t move. Also over time hinges on some types of windows can rust as well as window hardware can rust and would cost more to keep fixing it.
- Noisy Windows?
Replacement windows don’t just reduce transfer of heat but insulate from outdoor noise as well. If the noise from outdoors can be easily be heard in your home, you probably need replacement windows.
