Home 9 Windows 9 Is Your Electric Bill on the Rise? It Could be Your Windows.

Have you noticed a spike in your electric bill recently, with no obvious culprit?  Sure, it could be the electric company raising your bill again, but it also could be the condition of your windows. 

Window Lifespan

The average lifespan of windows is approximately 15-20 years. If your windows are heading towards that age, we encourage you to do a simple self-check to see if your windows could need to be replaced. 

Are There Visible Cracks In Your Windows?

This includes the vinyl or frame.  If so, there is likely a draft coming through the cracks. Even worse, damaged windows are a security risk. 

Do You Have Condensation Forming Inside Your Windows?

If so, you could have failing window seals. The condensation occurs because you have outside air getting in and inside air getting out. 

Are You Noticing Excessive Outdoor Noise?

That’s a sign that the insulation in your windows has deteriorated over time.

Do You Feel Hot Or Cold Drafts Near Your Window?

If so, this suggests the seals of your windows have worn out.

Are There Signs Of Water Leakage?

If so, you should get your windows inspected as soon as possible.

If you have any of the above problems, you should contact a window specialist, who can let you know if you need to replace your windows. In addition to rising energy bills, older or damaged windows can cause mold, mildew, and even rot.
