Even if your home has great insulation and air sealing, outdated windows can undermine your comfort and energy efficiency. Here are some telltale signs that it may be time to upgrade your windows.

High Energy Bills

If your windows are old and inefficient, they could be letting heat seep in and out of your home, driving up heating and cooling costs.


If your windows aren’t sufficiently keeping the winter cold out, condensation will occur when indoor moisture hits the cold inside window surface. Condensation may also accumulate between panes if a window has lost its seal.

Indoor Drafts

If your house is well sealed and insulated and you’re still feeling drafts, your windows may be poorly sealed or improperly installed.

Outside Noise

Well designed windows have multiple panes and insulating gas for added efficiency and sound protection. If you’re hearing a lot of outside noise, your windows may be poorly sealed or improperly installed.

Hard to Open & Close

Windows can shift or accumulate dirt and debris over time, making them difficult to open and close. Today’s windows are designed to be extremely easy to open and close.
