Whether you’re moving into a new home in Manchester or you’ve lived in your house for years, at some point you’ll need to stop and think about your windows.
Replacement windows can last for years, especially when you choose to upgrade with quality vinyl windows from Universal Windows Direct.
There are several telltale signs that indicate that it’s time for new windows. If you’re wondering if the time is now, here are the key considerations to keep in mind:
- Did you know that drafty windows are one of the biggest sources of energy loss?
If you’re losing energy through your window frames, sash, or sill, money is going right out the window along with it.
It can be fairly easy to detect drafts, and you can do so with some simple tools such as an incense stick or even your bare hand.
For large drafts, you can simply place your hand in front of the window frames on a windy day and feel for air leaks.
If you’re dealing with smaller drafts, you can light an incense stick and look for movements in the smoke.
- How much are you spending on your utility bills?
If your energy costs are increasing with seemingly no end in sight, the culprit might be with your windows.
US consumers collectively lose $35 billion per year due to drafty windows.
- Are your current windows rotting, peeling, or warping?
This is something that you’ll commonly find with wood windows.
However, very low quality vinyl windows can also peel and warp as well.
If you’re noticing any of these signs, it’s time to consider window replacement.
