Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Existing Double Glazed Window

Articles

Here are some signs that it may be time to replace your existing double glazed windows:

  • Condensation: If you notice condensation between the panes of glass, it means that the seal between the two panes has failed, and moisture is getting inside. This can lead to reduced energy efficiency and visibility through the window.
  • Drafts: If you feel drafts around your windows, it means that the window is not sealing properly, and air is getting in. This can lead to increased energy bills and reduced comfort in your home.
  • Damage: If your window is damaged, such as cracked glass or warped frames, it may be time to replace it. Damaged windows can compromise the security of your home and reduce energy efficiency.
  • Age: If your windows are more than 15-20 years old, it may be time to replace them. Over time, windows can lose their energy efficiency and become less effective at keeping your home comfortable.
  • Noise: If you can hear outside noise through your windows, it means that they are not providing adequate sound insulation. This can be especially problematic if you live in a noisy area or near a busy street.
  • Difficulty opening or closing: If your windows are difficult to open or close, it may be a sign that the frames have warped or become damaged over time. This can make it difficult to ventilate your home and reduce its energy efficiency.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s a good idea to consult with a professional to determine whether it’s time to replace your double glazed windows. At The Norfolk Window Company, we provide a free and friendly no-obligation quote, so get in contact with us today.
