If you live in an older home, no doubt there are many charming things you love about it. But if you have older windows or even original windows, here are a few reasons why you may want to consider replacing them.
If the temperature in any given room varies greatly from the interior to nearby the window, this is a classic problem. Older windows are not nearly as weather resistant as newer ones. If your windows rattle at the slightest presence of wind and you cannot keep a consistent temperature in your home, this is a great reason to go for a replacement.
To go along with the previous point, if your windows are drafty, your HVAC system is working twice as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature. This results of course in high utility bills, especially in the Winter and Summer months. So, if you have put off replacing your windows due to the cost, consider how you will be saving money in the long run.
Single pane windows common in older homes are notorious for allowing outside noise to travel through. If you are tired of your sleep or other activities being disturbed by exterior noises, upgrading your windows can solve your problems.
Over the course of time, window frames may be painted numerous times. With every coat of paint, it may become more and more difficult to operate your windows properly. If you must fight to open or close your windows, or worse yet, cannot open them at all, new windows can prove to be a breath of fresh air.
In the end, replacing old and tired windows can solve many of your problems, leaving your home more livable. Windows have come a long way, even in just a decade or two.
