WHEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY WINDOWS? – Courtesy of Andersen Windows
Knowing when to replace your home’s windows isn’t always as clear as it may seem. If your home is older than 15 years, it’s probably a good time to check and make sure your windows are still operating correctly. For instance, do you have trouble opening or closing your windows? Do you consistently find moisture on your windows’ interior? Just like your washing machine, refrigerator, or roof shingles, over time, your windows and doors need to be replaced. To help you through the replacement process, Andersen provides tips and solutions to help determine if the time to replace and upgrade is now.
3. ARE YOU SEEING YOUR FURNITURE, CARPET, DRAPES OR ARTWORK FADE AWAY?
Ultraviolet rays entering through windows and patio doors can lead to fading of furniture, carpet, window treatments and artwork. These and other materials, especially ones with organic fabrics, are susceptible to fading when exposed to sunlight. Upgrading your windows to more energy efficient products can potentially reduce fading and extend the life of your personal and household items. Andersen® replacement windows are available with SmartSun™ glass, which blocks 95 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays that can cause fading.
