Your heating bills creep up may be a sign to replace your windows or doors
If your heating bills are getting a bit higher than they normally would be it could be because your home is becoming less energy efficient and this more often than not is down to the efficiency of your doors and windows. We have posted some top tips and 3 best hacks on this topic before but they might not be enough and you may need to replace your windows or doors!
You can feel draughts around the frames
If you are feeling draughts around the frames, then this could mean that the seals are beginning to fail, and you may need to replace your windows or doors.
If there is condensation in-between the panes of your window glass
Desiccant is used in-between the double-glazing panels to absorb the natural moisture that occurs between the panes keeping the unit fog-free. If the seal deteriorates, then you would start seeing moisture there. If you see this then this is a good indication that you need to update your windows. If you have condensation on the outside take a look at our post on why this happens.
You can hear a lot of noise from outside
Your windows or doors won’t close properly
If your windows or doors don’t close properly this could be because the frame or mechanisms are compromised. This not only makes your house a lot less energy efficient but could potentially be a safety issue.
The frames are looking worse for wear
If the frames around the windows and doors are looking a bit dishevelled, perhaps they have cracks or are yellowing then this is a good sign that you need to update them. If they are timber they may be rotten, and if they are PvC they could be made from inferior quality plastic.
