Summer is just around the corner and with it comes sweltering heat, blasted air conditioners, and/or more opened windows. Damaged, broken, or inefficient windows are known to cause discomfort as well as higher energy bills.
Maintaining your home’s windows can help ensure that it remains cozy and functional despite harsh climate conditions. Today we are sharing 4 key reasons you should replace your windows this summer.
1. THE WINDOWS ARE DAMAGED
Windows are some of the most used structures in your home. This constant use, however, can lead to deterioration. Don’t ignore that small crack or broken seal on your window. And, don’t try to fix it yourself. Remember that applying a quick fix to your window does not guarantee a permanent solution to the problem.
Things to look for when inspecting your windows:
- rotted frames
• failed caulking
• cracked glass
Always remember that it is best to invest in an effective long-term solution before small window problems get out of hand.
2. THE WINDOWS ARE INEFFICIENT
It’s always a good idea to keep track of your windows to ensure that the shifting seasons don’t catch you off guard. When you have a broken or inefficient window, it would be hard for it to filter the heat coming from outside, especially during the scorching summer season. So instead of being comfortable and feeling protected inside your home, you end up feeling hot and sticky because of your busted window.
Before you lose your cool literally and figuratively, it’s better to replace that old window of yours with a new one. At Next Door & Window, we offer high-quality replacement windows from some of the most trusted names in the industry. We make sure your new windows are installed correctly and sealed tightly to keep the unwanted heat out for good.
3. YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM A HUGE ELECTRICITY BILL
As mentioned, air leaks or drafts can cause discomfort in your home, causing you to overwork your HVAC units. They will significantly drive up your energy costs. They usually come from small cracks, gaps, and crevices found in old and deteriorated windows and doors.
If you are having trouble with your windows, have a professional contractor inspect them now. You may not notice it easily, but an inefficient window that fails to regulate temperatures inside your home can cause you hefty cooling (and heating) bills.
If you don’t want to spend a ton of money on cooling (or heating), make sure to replace any old or damaged windows with energy-efficient ones. Each window unit from Next Door and Window is given an air and watertight seal. We use an ingenious combination of rubber membrane, specialized sealants, insulating foam, and exterior cladding to ensure maximum protection from the elements.
4. POSTPONING CAN COST MORE IN THE LONG RUN
Say you’ve noticed that your windows are leaking and in need of an upgrade, then postponing that can create permanent damage, which in turn can bring on major costs. But what if the damage isn’t an obvious leak or another easy tell? We know that sometimes it can be hard to see where your window stands and what exactly it needs.
If assessing the damage is too difficult, call-in window experts to give an assessment.
