Whether it’s the dog days of summer or the dead of winter, extreme temperatures can cause a host of problems for homeowners. That’s in part because heat tends to move into and out of homes most through windows. And a lot of homeowners are still living in houses with substandard windows. Old, damaged, or poorly designed windows can fail to insulate a house and contribute to uncomfortable living conditions and super high utility bills. The good news is that certain window brands like Marvin offer consumers the option to upgrade the look of their home while also saving money on utilities and protecting the environment at the same time. At 3JM, we only use the highest quality brands and products, and we often recommend Marvin windows to our partners. On that note, here’s how Marvin windows can improve your home’s energy efficiency:
Sings You Need Window Replacement
A high utility bill is not the only sign you may have a problem with your windows. (Although, excess energy consumption could very well be a symptom of compromised windows.) In addition, homeowners should take note if their windows
- Are difficult to open or close.
- Were installed before 1980.
- Exhibit noticeable temperature changes near them.
- Have condensation present between glass panes.
If your windows fit any of the above criteria, then it’s time to consider replacing them ASAP.
