When to Change Your Windows: Some Points to Consider

Windows play an important role in the form and function of a house, but are often overlooked. What a lot of people don’t realize is that:

In older houses, faulty windows can account for a third of the total heat loss in winter and as much as 75 percent of interior heat gain in summer.

There’s no avoiding the costs associated with heating and cooling and unfortunately, you stand to spend more when your windows are not in the best shape. To find out if your windows need attention from Salem windowscontractor, A&A Services, consider the following:

  • Stand inside your house on a windy day with a lit candle near the window’s edge. If the flame flickers or goes out, your weather stripping could be damaged…
  • If you need to prop open your window with a book or a stick, the window may have lost its functionality…
  • Do your windows get fogged with condensation? If so, you may have a seal failure and need to replace the glazing or the entire window…

If you can relate to at least one of the situations mentioned above, it’s time to get in touch with a window expert from A&A Services. Depending on the state of your windows, you may either need repairs or replacement, but either way, the sooner you get the job done, the better. This is to avoid further damage that could affect the rest of your home, leading to bigger, more expensive problems. Like you, A&A Services went on a search for the best windows in Salem.
