Vinyl windows are a popular choice among Calgary homeowners thanks to their many benefits. In addition to being more energy efficient than other types of windows, vinyl windows are also resistant to a lot of damages that other windows face and, therefore, have a much longer life span. However, no windows are invincible, no matter how great their benefits.
Sooner or later, you will need to replace your vinyl windows (though usually, it's much, much later). Here are a few ways to tell that it's time to replace your vinyl windows:
Your Energy Bills are Going Up
One of the main benefits of vinyl windows is that they are highly energy efficient and help you to bring down your overall energy costs. If your energy bills start creeping up, it could be a sign that your vinyl windows are becoming less efficient, perhaps because the gas between the panes has dissipated or because the seals around the windows have been compromised.
There could be many other reasons why your energy bills are going up, so it is important for you to investigate all causes before you identify your windows as the culprits. You may want to work with a consultant to get an energy audit to be sure of the source of the problem.
Water is Leaking Into Your Home
If the seals on your vinyl windows become compromised, water could start to leak into your home. The water is unlikely to damage the windows, since vinyl does not rot or rust. However, the water can get into your walls, where it could cause rot or encourage the spread of mold. Not only will mold destroy the building materials, but it will also threaten the health of your family.
You're Ready for a New Look
Vinyl windows come in a variety of styles, shapes and colors. You may not have had a hand in selecting the windows if you moved into a home that already had them, and you may not like the style that was chosen. Even if you did pick the windows, your tastes may have changed, and you may be ready for a new look.
