3 Signs You Should Replace Your Windows

As mentioned, there are some clear signs that you know for certain it is time to replace the windows in your home that you just can’t miss, such as drafty windows, cracks or breaks in the frame or pane, or the simple fact that they are decades and decades old. Below you will find three signs you should replace your windows that you may not know about.

  1. Condensation Between Window Panes — If you have noticed condensation between the panes in your windows, it is likely time to replace your windows. You know that your seals have failed when moisture (AKA condensation) appears between the glass panes, an unfortunate issue that is not easily repaired. You may luck out and be able to replace the panes of glass in your window, which requires contacting your window manufacturer for more information. In most of these types of cases, replacing your windows is the only fix to the problem. A trusted and experienced window replacement professional can get you windows that will remain condensation-free for many years to come!
  2. Cold-to-the-Touch Glass in Cooler Months — Issues concerning insulation worsen as temperatures drop. If you notice the glass in your windows is cold in cooler weather, it’s probably time to upgrade your setup. Today’s windows are well-insulated and work to keep your home comfortable and warm, even in the coldest winter temperatures. Having well-insulated windows is especially important in climates like Northern Utah that can experience months of freezing weather. If your windows are cold to the touch, we recommend contacting our professional window replacement team as soon as possible.
  3. Hot-to-the-Touch Glass in Warmer Weather — Like cold weather, hot weather can have an effect on your windows’ ability to properly and effectively insulate your house. When the glass in your windows is hot, you know that they are poorly insulated. You will want to upgrade your windows sooner than later with quality, modern windows to prevent the hot temperatures from entering your property.
