How to Decide if Your Windows Need to Be Replaced

Not sure aboutyour Huntington Beach, California replacement windows? Having a difficult time deciding whether or not you need replacement windows? Many homeowners think they know when their windows in need of replacement, but the truth is many homeowners just don’t know. Sometimes a window can be in dire need of being replaced but homeowners just don’t notice the signs. Below, is a cheat list with some of the tell-tale signs on how to tell if your window needs to be replaced.


When a window is in need of replacement you can tell easily by the drafts your home has. If your window is allowing a lot of unwanted outside air in, you’ll definitely feel it. In the winter, just sitting around a window can leave you chilly and make you feel like your window was open. Letting a lot of cold air in will absolutely hike your energy bills up. The same goes for the summer months when unwanted hot and humid air seeps in.

Spikes in Energy Bills

If you notice that your energy bills have been getting larger and larger, though your energy usage hasn’t change, or you haven’t added anything in your home that would cause such an energy spike, then it might be your windows. When windows have air leaks they cause homeowners to adjust the heat or air conditioning. When that happens, the cost of energy bills can spike up. This is a tell-tale sign that your windows have leaks and that they might need to be replaced.

Corrosion, Warping or Bad Wear and Tear

When a window is heavily corroded, badly warped or has severe wear and tear, it’s often a sign that your window needs to be replaced. It’s important to remember that a window can really affect the way your neighbors and neighborhood views your home. Not to mention, the way you view your own home. If a window is sending a message that your home is unmaintained or dirty, it’s time to do something about it.


This might be an obvious sign, but when a window is broken, and beyond repair it needs to be replaced. Windows are easy to understand. They work until they don’t. If your window is broken it can’t properly work, and it can’t properly do its job of keeping your home safe.
