How often do you need to replace your windows?

The typical lifespan for double glazing is twenty years, but how often you need to change your windows will depend on a number of different factors. The science behind uPVC windows is ever-advancing, meaning higher-quality windows are always coming to the market, and many people will want to upgrade theirs to keep their homes at their best.



Going green

The more energy-efficient your home is, the lower your energy bills will be and the more you reduce your carbon footprint and the impact of climate change. High quality sliding windows and aluminium windows help seal the heat in, with double glazing acting as a barrier against the cold.

If your old windows are in a sorry state of repair, then you may need to replace them before that guideline twenty years. Windows that are visibly damaged obviously need replacing as a matter of urgency, as they may pose a security risk.

Look for the signs

Other signs you may need to replace your windows include draughts and cold air getting in, condensation on or between the double glazing, or if you notice your carpets and furniture are fading, which could be a sign that your old windows lack the UV protection of more modern ones.

Windows that no longer open and close properly should also be replaced, not just because they’re an inconvenience, but they could also be a safety hazard in the event of a fire. Modern windows are designed to be as efficient as possible, keeping your home snug and built to last for the bare minimum of two decades.

Consider new window installation

If you’ve noticed problems developing with your windows, then it’s best to take action before they deteriorate anymore. Older windows don’t offer the same levels of energy efficiency, UV protection and security as more modern versions, so it’s better to be safe than sorry if you think there might be issues developing.
