If there’s an emergency situation in your home that requires quick evacuation, you’ll want to ensure that your family can escape through windows if necessary. If you have old windows that are hard to open, that won’t be good should the need come to exit quickly. Ensure that your windows are all in good working order – especially the ground floor options. Buy new ones if the old ones are in a state of disrepair.
