1. Excessive Condensation
While small condensation levels on the glass surface of windows and doors are normal, excessive amounts can signify a bigger problem. If you notice condensation between the window panes, your seal is damaged, no longer airtight, and needs to be replaced.
2. Cold Drafts
If you can feel air coming in through closed windows and doors, you may need to replace the weatherstripping, the problem window or door altogether. Weatherstripping creates a tight seal around windows and doors to prevent air from escaping. When weatherstripping wears out, your HVAC system has to work harder to keep you comfortable, increasing your energy bills. For superior efficiency and performance, replace your windows and doors with ENERGY STARⓇ certified products.
3. Increased Noise Level
If you start to notice outdoor noise becoming more prominent, your windows and doors may be losing their soundproofing qualities. You may become more aware of traffic, dogs barking, or people walking past your house.
4. Physical Damage & Faulty Operation
Inspect your windows and doors for visible signs of damage. If you can see any warped, cracked, or rotted frames, replace the window or door as soon as possible. Not only will the damaged window or door negatively impact your energy bills, but it is also a security issue for easy access to your home and belongings. Similarly, if a window or door is becoming difficult to operate, it may need to be replaced, or you risk it seizing over time from general wear and tear.
