With a laundry list of responsibilities including the kids, work, and household chores, it’s no wonder why so many Mississauga homeowners overlook little details like their windows. The majority of homeowners won’t even consider replacing their windows until the glass has broken or a frame has become damaged beyond repair. Just because these incidents haven’t occurred doesn’t mean that your windows aren’t sending out signs that it’s time for a replacement. Replacement windows can increase the quality of comfort within your home, help keep your family safe, and even save you some many on monthly electric bills. To get a clearer idea of whether or not it’s time for replacement windows in your home, we’ve created this short list of signs.
#1 Replacement Parts Have Become Hard to Find
If it feels like a manhunt every time you have to find a replacement window part for a repair, chances are the window has been discontinued. Once a window is discontinued, there’s no longer a need for the parts to be manufactured, meaning the current parts in circulation will only become more expensive and difficult to find. Still, if this occurs, you should be less concerned with how difficult it is to find parts and more concerned with why the company considered the window obsolete.
#2 Your Energy Bill Continues to Rise
No one likes rising bills, especially when you’ve done everything you can to reduce energy usage. If you’ve made every effort to make your home a little greener and your energy expenses continue to rise, chances are it’s time for a window replacement. Your current window can have drafts, twisted frames, single pane glass or other issues that prevent it from optimally insulating your home.
#3 Your Windows Get Jammed or Locked into Place
While all windows offer a bit of resistant, if it feels like a major workout every time you attempt to open or close your windows, take it as a sign. It’s time for a replacement! Not only is opening and closing jammed windows a major hassle, but it also becomes a safety hazard as windows in such condition can slam shut at any given moment. Windows in this condition have also been known to make home particularly vulnerable to break ins. By replacing your windows with functioning, secure windows you’ll keep your home and your family safe.
