Damaged windows can impair the energy efficiency and aesthetic appeal of your home. Unfortunately it can sometimes be tricky to choose between repairing and replacing broken windows. Read on if you need help deciding whether to repair or replace your windows.
Broken Window Pane
In most cases living with a broken window pane is not an acceptable option. Cracks may spread and develop until your window pane breaks altogether. Whether you should repair or replace the window pane depends on the specific situation. If you have a vintage window with many panes and only one is damaged, it may be cheaper to go with a repair. However, cheaper vinyl windows should be replaced with new, energy-efficient windows.
If you begin to notice condensation between panes of glass, your windows may no longer be properly sealed. This can occur because of the contractions and expansions that the glass undergoes due to heat fluctuation. The larger your window is, the more of a problem this can pose. When your windows are not properly sealed, your air conditioning and heating systems will have to work harder in order to maintain the desired temperature in your home. This will drive up your energy costs and overwork your appliances.
Rotting Frames and Sashes
Your home’s aesthetic appeal is not the only thing that declines when your window frames and sashes rot; so too does its ability to keep external water and air out of the home. If you only experience a small amount of rot, repair may be appropriate. Thorough damage, however, calls for replacement of your window.

In the interest of saving money on energy and enjoying a greater level of comfort, you should replace your damaged windows. Although there are many different types and styles of windows, some are more energy efficient than others. Double pane and triple pane windows are astronomically more energy efficient than single pane windows. The type of window frame can also have an impact on how energy efficient your replacement windows are. Watch this video for more tips on planning for a window replacement.

You can probably think of a lot of ways to save energy and reduce your monthly bills, but did you know that replacing your windows is one of the easiest and most effective ways? New energy-efficient windows have been proven to save energy and money for homeowners throughout Florida. To understand what makes new windows so much better for your wallet and the environment, read this article and learn about some of the key factors that affect window performance.
It all starts with the glass. Energy-efficient windows, like those available from Window World, are made using UV-filtering Low-E Glass. Low-E Glass reduces solar heat gain in the summer by filtering long-wave radiation from the sun. During the winter months, Low-E Glass blocks the heat in your home from escaping. In other words, this specialty glass can lower your heating and cooling bills year round.
Energy-efficient windows feature at least two pieces of laminated glass sandwiched together and then filled with either argon or krypton gas. These nontoxic gases act as invisible barriers to prevent UV rays and extreme temperature from entering your home—and the more barriers that separate the inside of your home from the exterior, the stronger the protection from heat gain or loss, and the less you will spend to cool and heat your home.
The final piece of the puzzle is the spacer. Window World’s Intercept™ spacer system creates an effective thermal barrier to retain insulating gas. The Intercept spacer system also keeps the edges of the window glass warmer, so your home feels more comfortable in the winter.
