Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to wait for the glass to shatter or a frame to break in order to replace the windows in your San Diego home. Window replacements come with a wide variety of benefits that can make a dramatic difference in a home’s safety, comfort, and monthly expenses. If you are on the fence about investing in a window replacement project, we recommend taking the time to review some of the signs listed below to help you determine if your home could benefit from new windows.
1. It’s Become Increasingly Harder to Find Replacement Parts
Many homeowners choose to continuously repair their windows rather than replace them. This technique can work for a while, but there are factors that could make the process difficult to sustain. For example, if you find that replacement parts for your windows are becoming more expensive and harder to find, chances are your windows were discontinued and, therefore, the parts are no longer in circulation. This means parts will only become pricier as time passes. And, more importantly, it means the manufacturers have determined the windows are obsolete.
2. Your Energy Bill is Getting Out of Hand
You have switched out your light bulbs, reprogrammed your thermostat, and even unplugged unused appliances, and yet your energy bill continues to rise? This is likely due to a draft that has formed within your window frame. While you have the option to repair the frame and get rid of the draft, it’s important to keep in mind that drafts are usually due to weather damage and have a tendency of returning once the next rainy season occurs. By switching to a more energy efficient, weather resistant material like vinyl windows, you’ll save money on both your electric bill and your repair costs.
3. You Hear Everything That Happens Outside of Your Home
Light nature sounds are enjoyable, traffic and construction, however, are not. If you feel like your home is right in the center of the action and you miss peace and quiet, replacing your windows could help. You can block out a significant amount of exterior noise by purchasing windows with double or triple pane glass, which is thicker than the glass found in older windows.
4. You Plan on Selling Your Home
There are few homeowners that will turn down the opportunity to increase their resale value. By purchasing a window material, like vinyl, that has been known for giving homeowners higher selling points than those without, you can consider your Carlsbad, CA windows replacement a good investment.
