Do your windows seem to be less efficient than they used to be when they were brand new? Over time, windows can become so damaged from the elements that they need to be replaced. If you don’t replace them when they are worn down and damaged, then you will most likely have higher energy bills because your windows will no longer effectively keep ambient air inside of your home and keep the outside air from seeping in. Here are some signs that you need to request window replacement information so that you can upgrade your inefficient windows.
You Feel a Cold Draft by Your Windows: If you physically feel much colder when you are by your windows, then you need to request window replacement information so that you can purchase new windows that will provide better insulation for your home.
Your Windows Look Hazy: If your windows look hazy no matter how many times you clean them, or if they develop condensation between the panels, then it is time to replace them.
Your Windows No Longer Open or Shut: If your windows are stuck in an open or shut position and you can’t pry them loose, then you should think about requesting window replacement information from a reputable window company.
New Window Treatments Help Maximize the Efficiency of Replacement Windows
When replacing your windows, it is a good time to think about installing new window treatments, as well, in order to maximize the efficiency of your new windows. Old, outdated window treatments don't efficiently block out the sun's rays and keep heat from entering your home during the hot summer months. Installing new window treatments like custom shutters from Arizona Shutter can help increase the energy efficiency of your replacement windows and lower your monthly energy bills. Not only will shutters help to add a layer of insulation to your windows, but they will also make the interior of your home look more attractive and stylish.
