You know it's time to replace your windows when:

Your energy bill looks like your house payment

Every extra dollar that is spent to heat or cool your home that is lost to leaky, old windows is lost forever.  There was a time when energy was cheap and the word conservation wasn't even considered. Today, with rising fuel costs and long term concerns for our environment we must use our money and our resources responsibly.

Your windows are hard to open or won't open at all

Are you having trouble opening and closing your windows? If so, you have a problem.  What happens if you or your children had to escape through that window if you had a fire!

Windows that won't open easily are a safety hazard. Check for broken parts that may just need to be replaced or tracks that need lubricated. Some old windows open using a sort of pulley, but these quit working over time. If your windows are painted shut (as is often the case with older windows) you could use a putty knife or crow bar to try to get them unstuck. Usually, though, if they're painted shut they're in poor shape anyway and it would be better to just replace them. Sometimes the window and frame can warp as the house sets. You'll have to take out the old window to fix the frame, and you might as well put in new windows.

Your windows are just plain ugly

You also may want to replace windows if they significantly decrease the appearance of your entire house, have water stains, chips, or are rotten. Sometimes windows will be significantly more outdated than the rest of your house exterior, prompting you to update. For example, older houses usually have double-hung windows, while newer window options include gliding or casement windows. Windows say a lot about the style of your house.

You're putting on new exterior siding

Are you having the siding on your house replaced? It's the perfect time to replace your windows and dramatically change the outside appearance of your entire home. Not only will the outside of your house look better, but the siding and the windows can make a better fit and prevent unhealthy gaps.

You want a consistent appearance

If you need to replace one or two bad windows, consider replacing all the windows on that side of the house to maintain a consistent appearance.

You're experiencing cool/warm air leakage

Does daylight show around the edges and through cracks? Upgrading your windows can have a significant impact on your energy costs. Replacing single pane windows with double or triple panes or having windows put in with a special coating on the glass to reduce the penetration of UV (ultraviolet) rays are a couple of ways to up your energy savings. Look for low-E glass.

You're sick of high maintenance

If you have wooden window frames and are tired of having to scrape and paint them every once in awhile, putting in vinyl-clad windows will eliminate that process for good. No more inconvenience.

You want to improve indoor appearance

Adding windows to a room will have a major impact on its appearance by increasing the natural lighting and creating a sense of openness. You could replace two side-by-side, or combination, windows with one large window. It could make a big difference, both inside and outside.

Your windows are about to disintegrate

It seems almost common sense to say that if your windows leak, are so rotten they may just fall apart, or have other serious and obvious problems that can't be fixed, it's time to replace them! If you notice moisture stuck between the panes of glass, there is a broken seal and you'll probably need to replace the window.
