How Much Does Not Replacing Your Windows Cost You?June 13, 2019
Though most homeowners would love to replace their windows and patio doors with newer, more energy-efficient models, many choose not to do so for the simple reason that they think it will cost too much. The truth is that old, outdated windows will likely end up costing you more in the long run due to higher energy bills, increased maintenance costs and even structural damage to your home.
The Cost of Doing Nothing
Here’s the price you pay for not replacing failing windows:
- You can end up wasting hundreds of dollars annually paying for heated and cooled air that is lost through inefficient windows.
- Your leaky windows will let in moisture that can lead to mold growth and structural damage.
- Inefficient, drafty windows will decrease the value of your home.
- Your carpets and drapes will become faded and unappealing because your old windows aren’t able to block the sun’s harmful UV rays.
- A haze of condensation will obscure the view outside your windows.
- You’ll have to hire someone to putty or paint your old windows – or worse, spend your own time and risk your safety on a ladder doing it yourself.
- Ugly, unattractive windows will mar the beauty of your home.
- You’ll lose the use of certain rooms because they’re uncomfortably hot or cold.
- Your windows will be a danger to fingers big and small because they won’t stay up.
- If your windows are painted shut or otherwise won’t open, they pose a safety risk in the event of a fire or break-in.
- Your home will be noisy because you can hear cars going by and other outdoor sounds due to failing windows that can’t block out the noise.
