Pella’s experts (Pella has a proud 85-year history of environmental stewardship) recommend to look for the following signs as indicators that old windows need to be replaced:

Poor performance — opening and closing is a difficult task; air leaks in, out or around the window; condensation or fogging occurs on or between glass panes; windows are painted or nailed shut and virtually impossible to open;
Looks — chipping, deterioration or water stains of the window or the area around the window (inside or out) is a sure sign; outdated design or style that doesn’t blend well with the rest of the home;
Effort — cleaning is a major hassle and another chore to be avoided; replacement parts are hard to find or even non-existent.
2. Would you like to add a more aesthetic look and increase the resale value of your property? Looking for stylish, long lasting window replacement solutions?

Pella’s experts recommend:

Windows can deteriorate much faster on one side of the house than the other due to differences in sunlight and weather exposure;
Keep in mind that new windows can differ in the type of style, as well as type of glass from older models, even if you’re trying for a close match;
To keep the exterior appearance consistent, consider replacing all the windows on one side (or one level if it’s a two-story house) at the same time;
New replacement windows help seal out the sounds of nature, traffic, or noisy neighbors — thanks to improved design and performance which enhances their soundproofing ability;
If you’re replacing siding, replace windows before the siding, so that siding can be fit to the new windows, for a neater appearance and better overall energy efficiency.
3. Would you like to Improve energy efficiency? Does your home feel drafty indicating a need for better sealing?

To better protect interior furnishings, opt for Low-E (low emissivity) glass coatings, which help reduce heat transfer and ultraviolet (UV) rays that can fade carpets, walls and furniture. Low-E glass reflects heat back to its source, helping to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Be aware that Low-E windows will typically appear slightly darker than standard glass when viewed from the exterior of the home, to offer greater interior protection and energy efficiency.
Replacing old single-pane windows with today’s energy-efficient double- or triple-pane glazing can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs;
Replacing fixed units (windows that do not open) with operable venting windows and doors (those that do open) can improve the flow of fresh air throughout your home;
To add to overall energy efficiency, look for products that have qualified for the Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® standards; selecting windows and doors that have earned the ENERGY STAR distinction can help you achieve substantial savings on heating and cooling costs.*
