Everything happens to have a running life, be it the makeup you apply, the appliances you use, and the smaller, working parts of things that help create something else. So, everything in our house also happens to come with a certain running time or life span. Our furniture can last us around 8-10 years, depending on the type of furniture and its usage, a microwave has a lifespan of 2-5 years at most and so on. Similarly, the windows of our home also happen to have a lifespan 20-40 years depending on the type of material that was used.
So, if you happen to have moved in an old house, you should inspect the windows. Even if you do not know the lifespan of the windows, there are other signs and indicators that can let you know that it is time to replace your windows. The most obvious signs are physically apparent signs of wear and tear, rusting, cracks and so on. Similarly, if the window tends to get jammed or stuck whenever you try to open or close it, it is clearly nearing the end of its lifespan. Another sign for you to look out for is condensation and moisture seeping inside your house through the window, because once you notice this, you will know that your window is no longer doing its job. Once you have noticed these signs, you should opt for new windows, and you can find a variety of types and designs, or you can even opt for custom plantation shutters Dallas.
Your windows also keep your house insulated, so if you are noticing a change in your heating or cooling bill even though you have not changed the way you use your heating/cooling system, it is very likely that your windows are not insulating properly, and are letting the cool/warm air leave your house rather than keeping it there.
