5 Signs Your PA Home Has Drafty or Leaky Windows: Is It Time for a Window Replacement?

When it comes to energy efficiency, windows make a big impact. Inefficient windows can cost you much more money in the long run, as they require more energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. Drafty and leaky windows are not only energy-sapping but can also contribute to humidity and moisture issues in the home. Leaky or drafty windows can go unnoticed if you aren’t paying attention, which can cost you money in the long run.

If you are experiencing significant drafts or leaks in your windows, it’s likely time for a window replacement from S&S Remodeling! Ongoing leaks or drafts can cause larger issues down the road and cost you even more money years from now. 

If you’re wondering if your windows need to be replaced, here are 5 signs to look out for:

1. You Feel Cold Air:

If you can feel cold air coming in through your windows, it’s a sign that you need to replace them. This is because the windows are not providing adequate insulation, and the cold air is making its way into your home. This is especially noticeable in the winter and can make your home uncomfortable.

2. You Feel Warmer Air:

If you feel warm air coming in from outside, it’s a sure sign that you have drafty windows. This is especially true in the summer when the warm air from outside can enter your home and make it difficult to keep cool.

3. You Hear Outside Noise:

If you can hear loud noises coming from outside, it’s likely that your windows are not providing adequate soundproofing. This is because the windows are allowing sound to travel through the gaps.

4. You See Condensation:

If you can see condensation on your windows, it’s a sign that you need to replace them. This is because the windows do not provide sufficient insulation and allow moisture to enter your home.

5. You See Cracks or Damaged Frames:

Drafty and leaky windows can cause the frames to crack or become damaged over time. If you can see any cracks or damage on the frames, it’s an indication that you need replacement windows. 

So Your Windows are Drafty – What Next?

If you’ve noticed any of the signs above, it’s time to think about investing in new windows. Not only will it improve your home’s energy efficiency, but it can also help reduce noise and moisture levels.

    Sean was a great point of contact for us at S&S. Very communicative and responsive. Worked with us and our hours of availability, and made sure to check in before and after the roofing project. Let alone the project came out looking great with no mess left behind. Big fans of S&S after this experience
