Windows are much more than the pretty openings of your home. They provide energy efficiency, better lighting, ample ventilation and plenty more. With such benefits, windows deserve care and attention. But even with regular maintenance, our windows’ reliability tends to go down over the years.
California Energy Consultant Service, your trusted windows expert, discusses the five most common window problems and how to solve them.
Do you feel a breeze when you pass by your closed windows? That means there is a draft of air coming from the outside. They’re more commonly known as air leaks, and they form on windows when the weatherstripping has worn down. This normally occurs with the changing season like when the cool breezes of winter start blowing.
Safety is an investment each homeowner should pay attention to. Broken or weakened locks on windows would defeat the purpose of having those locks in the first place. Luckily, like most window hardware, they can easily be replaced. It’s more advisable to replace your window entirely when the locks need fixing, the glass is cracked and the weather stripping is no longer good, to guarantee total protection against harsh weather. Call your residential window replacement company to get the new windows you need.
Fogged Window Glass
Fog inside a dual-pane window glass means the insulation seal is broken and requires immediate replacement. Without immediate action, your home would suffer moisture issues and reduced energy efficiency due to your compromised window glass seals.
Cracked Window Frame
Cracked window frames affect both the look and function of your windows. When fractures begin to form on your window frame, it’s high time to begin looking at California Energy Consultant Service’s impressive selection of high performing window frames that won’t crack or break easily even with extreme weather exposure.
Windows That Stick
Do you struggle to open or close your windows? Do you hear light creaking when pushing down to close your double-hung window? These are signs your window has aged and reached its peak performance. Or perhaps the extreme weather has affected it. A window replacement is the best solution when your windows have become impossible to operate. Not only is a stuck window inconvenient, but it may also present a risk in case of an emergency.
