Why should I replace my windows?
There are plenty of reasons for replacement windows. Window technology has improved over the recent years, and today’s double-pane technology is superior in many ways. When you choose Clearwater Exteriors as your window replacement experts, you’ll reduce your utility costs, limit outside noise, and have the most aesthetically pleasing windows on the street.
How long do windows last?
It depends on the type of window. Old-fashioned double-pane windows usually last around 20 years, while we get calls to replace builder-grade windows in less than 10. Aluminum windows have been virtually obsolete for efficiency reasons for 30 years.
At Clearwater Exteriors, we use specialized, non-metal frame materials and double-pane glass because, on average, they last longer than both single-pane and aluminum window options.
What are some signs that my windows need to be replaced?
Here are some signs that you need replacement windows.
Spikes in energy costs
Older windows lack proper insulation. That means during the hot Denver summers and cold Colorado winters, your air conditioner and furnace need to work much harder. And, because your HVAC system is running constantly, it costs you more money.
Sometimes, you can even feel air flowing across the window threshold, even when it is closed. You might even be able to hear the wind whistling through. That is a sure sign that you need replacement windows. But just because you can’t feel air moving through a closed window, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t happening.
When you replace your windows with double-pane technology, you’ll see a significant reduction in your energy bills.
Your windows are allowing in moisture
If you notice moisture building up inside the window or any water forming on the frame, it can be a sign of inefficient windows. If you notice moisture, you definitely need to replace your windows.
They get stuck
As windows age, they often begin to stick. At first, it might not seem like a significant issue, but the problem is progressive and will get worse. Not only is sticking windows an annoyance, but it could also prove to be a safety hazard if you can’t open them in case of an emergency.
Too much noise
Your windows should limit outside noises. If you are hearing all of the sounds of the street inside your home, it is time for replacement windows. Old single-pane windows or 1980’s technology double pane windows transfer sounds and vibrations easily. But when you replace your windows with today’s double-pane technology, you’ll instantly notice a reduction of outside noises.
They look old
The value of your house is partially dependent on aesthetics. Older windows can make your home look dated. Not only will new windows increase the energy efficiency of your home, but they will also improve your curb appeal, both inside and out!.
