Listen to the Things Your Windows are Telling You

January 18, 2016

Your windows contribute to energy efficiency, protect your home from the weather, provide ventilation and great views, and improve your home’s curb appeal. That’s why you should pay attention when they try to tell you something. Huff ‘N Puff explains how to interpret common window signs, and explains how to address these problems.

Common Window Issues

Condensation Between Window Panes

Your window is telling you that its seals have failed and that its insulating gases are gone. Condensation forming between window panes indicates the presence of moisture and that the window can no longer insulate your home. It’s time to get our replacement windows in Albany, NY. Our windows feature strong seals that will prevent condensation and an effective insulating gas blend.

Drafts Near the Window

Feeling drafts near your window is a sure sign that your window is no longer energy-efficient. This means that there are probably small cracks or gaps in the window frame or the weatherstripping. Replace the weatherstripping if necessary; if this doesn’t work, you may need a window replacement. Renewal by Andersen® manufactures our replacement windows from Fibrex® material. Fibrex won’t crack, chip, corrode, peel, and blister, so you can be sure that air and energy won’t escape.

Double-Hung Windows That are Hard to Operate

Double-hung windows are a popular window style for traditional homes. Back in the day, craftsmen made double-hung windows from wood. Once they become hard to operate, this means that the wood is swelling. Wood swells when damp or when air humidity is high. To avoid this, you may need a window replacement in Albany, NY. Our Fibrex replacement windows possess the advantages and look of wood, without its drawbacks. They are also easier to maintain than wood windows.
