Minor issues can be repaired by applying weatherstripping or other hardware that can seal cracks. However, if your home has seen a significant amount of damage, in may be worth it to replace your window entirely, instead of worrying about whether or not your quick fix is holding up.

If you notice that these issues persist, you should start looking for a replacement window.
Your energy bills are high
High energy bills could be caused by any number of things including an outdated HVAC system, a broken thermostat, a dirty air filter, and more. However, one of the most likely culprits of this is a leaky window that does little to help you maintain indoor air temperature. In the winter, windows provide heat by allowing sunlight in and keeping cold air out. In the summer, windows will help you keep that precious air conditioning inside the home.

And if you’re getting ready to sell your home, there’s nothing worse than having to admit that your energy bills have been steadily increasing for years.
