If you notice one or more of the following, it may be time to replace your windows:
- Drafts: If you feel a cold draft in the winter or heat in the summer, your windows aren’t doing their job. If you have old single pane windows, upgrading to dual pane windows will help you stay more comfortable and lower your utility bill.
- Foggy windows: If you have older dual pane windows, you may notice condensation or fog between the panes. This means that the seal has failed, and the windows should be replaced.
- A flickering flame: Wondering if you have dual pane windows? Hold a lighter or candle by your window. If you see two or more flames reflected, you do. If the flame flickers, there’s air coming in. It’s time to either replace the windows or, if they are dual pane windows in good condition, it might just be time to upgrade to more energy efficient windows with Low-E Glass.
