It’s Cold Outside. Are your Windows Keeping it Out?

As the weather cools down and we find ourselves entering the chilly winter months, it’s a great time to evaluate whether your windows are up for the job of keeping your home warm. If you find yourself constantly turning up the heat or wrapping up in blankets, your windows may be the culprit. Have you ever sat on the couch, happy to be cozy inside on a cold winter night, only to feel cool air coming through your closed windows behind you? At Glass N Pane, a window replacement company in Grapevine TX, we can help make drafty windows and high heating bills a thing of the past. We are an extremely reputable window replacement company with nearly 25 years of experience, and we pride ourselves on always putting our customers first. Have you been putting off having those windows replaced? Let us help.

There are several ways to determine if you need new windows. Try standing next to your windows on a cold day. If it feels colder than the rest of your house and if the glass feels cold beneath your hand, your windows are cooling down the heated air in your home. Hold out your hand, or even a lit candle, to the corners of your windows to determine if there are drafts entering your home. If your windows are difficult to open or have damaged or decaying frames, it may be time for them to be replaced. Effective windows should open easily and not have visible cracks and holes. Other signs are windows that leak or often build up condensation, or if you can hear a lot of outside noise. Windows in disrepair cause your heating and cooling systems to work double time to regulate fluctuating temperatures, all for that money to be, quite literally, going out the window.

Experts believe that drafty windows can cause energy bills to be 10% to 25% higher. Replacing dated, damaged windows with energy-efficient ones will not only reduce heating and cooling bills, it’s a huge selling point if you’re considering selling your home in the future. New windows are a great way to improve the appearance of your home, as well as its functionality and comfort.
