Is it Time to Replace the Windows in Your Home?

If you have an older home, you need to be able to recognize the signs that indicate it’s time to consider replacing your windows.  Here are some tips:

  • Look for cold or warm spots near the inside of your windows.  This means that the window is not insulating the house adequately.
  • Check for frost and ice buildup on the exterior of the house near doors and windows.
  • Be on the lookout for drafts.  Run a lighted candle around a window’s edge.  If it flickers, then drafts are coming in through that window.
  • Make sure your windows operate smoothly. It shouldn’t take effort to open and close them.
  • Realize that if you find yourself propping your windows open with a stick, it’s time to replace them!
