4 Signs That You Need New WindowsMarch 22, 2017
When your pipes burst, you know right away that you have a major plumbing problem needing immediate attention. If water is leaking into your attic, it’s clear that you have a problem with your roof. But how do you know if you have a problem with your window installation?
Here, [company_name] shares four key signs that indicate you need your windows replaced.
- Higher Energy Bills: If you’ve been noticing a steady increase in your energy bills, there’s a good chance your windows are the culprit. Old windows with poor insulation let energy escape your home, forcing your heating and cooling systems to compensate, and driving up your energy bills.
- Living Space Heats Up From Sunlight: High-quality window glass options, such as our own High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, have low-E coatings that filter infrared rays, the invisible part of sunlight that generates heat. With our special glass, your bow window could have direct sunlight streaming through it and the temperature wouldn’t change—you’d just enjoy a room bathed in natural light. Our High-Performance Low-E4 glass can also filter as much as 90% of the other invisible part of sunlight—UV rays—which can damage your furniture and other valuables, as well as give you sunburns.
- Drafty and Foggy Windows: If your windows are foggy and/or drafty, the window seals have failed and are letting cold air in. Our replacement prevent this. Every Renewal by Andersen replacement window features a superior seal, which, when combined with our thorough installation process, ensures a strong and tight window seal.
- Noisy Environment: Insulated windows with dual-panel glass don’t just prevent cold air from outside from entering your home—they also insulate against external noise. Sound needs air molecules to vibrate, and with a vacuum between the glass panels, the windows insulate noise— perfect if your home is facing a busy street. If you notice very little difference in the noise level whether your windows are open or closed, you likely will need new windows.
