Your windows play an important role in maintaining your home’s energy efficiency. If your window has problems, it can cause you to pay higher energy bills than you should. Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico, a window replacement expert, discusses windows and energy efficiency in this two part blog series. In part one, we delve into the common window problems that can affect your home’s energy efficiency:
Window drafts can make your rooms feel uncomfortable and make it harder for your HVAC system to maintain the temperature you want. Drafts can be caused by cracks in your window frame, damage to the window glass, damaged weather stripping and more. If your windows are drafty, then this means energy is escaping through your windows. This wasted energy will cost you, so consider a window replacement if possible.
Windows Are Hard to Operate
When your windows are hard to open and close, they probably no longer seal properly. Your windows cover and seal some of the largest openings in your home. A window that can’t be closed completely allows energy to escape. Some faulty windows can be fixed, but some windows need to be replaced. If you need new windows, call Renewal by Andersen of New Mexico. Our products can make a difference and enhance your home.
Condensation Between Glass Panes
Condensation on the surface of your window glass may mean your home has humidity issues but it doesn’t necessarily point to something wrong with your windows. But if you see condensation between the panes of your window glass, then you have a problem. This means the insulated seal in your window glass is broken. The glass is no longer as energy-efficient as it used to be. We recommend replacing your windows.
You shouldn’t just call any window contractor or window company to replace your windows because the quality of the company will affect the quality of your window replacement. It’s best if you choose a proven and experienced window company like Renewal by Andersen of New Mexico.
