It goes without saying that your windows need to be inspected and maintained regularly to ensure that they have good performance for the years to come. Achieving this will give you peace of mind knowing that your windows can give you consistent comfort, beauty and energy efficiency. However, there will come a point when your windows will fail, especially the window seals. Here are some signs that indicate you have failing window seals.
Foggy Glass Panes
If you notice fogging between your window panes, then this means that it no longer has good insulation performance. Keep in mind that fogging is caused by water droplets due to weather conditions and water vapor from failed window seals.
Your window frame can warp due to extreme temperature changes, leading to your window frames to expand and shrink. Other than looking unkempt, warped window frames can endanger your windows’ structural integrity. Once you notice your windows warping, call for a window replacement immediately.
Do you notice wind blowing inside from your windows, even when they’re closed? This means that the window seals are in bad condition, or worse, they’ve failed. In turn, this causes poor energy performance since air in your home escapes into the gaps, causing your HVAC unit to work harder to keep your home’s temperature comfortable. To prevent these issues, make sure that you get regular inspections, and replace your windows immediately if needed.
