Your windows are important to the overall look, feel, and safety of your home. They provide protection from the elements, pests, and even intruders. They give you another exit point in case of an emergency. They provide your home with light and air flow. They also give you a view of the outside. If your windows are failing to do any of the above, it’s time to give EcoView Windows and Doors a call. Not sure if you really do need to replace your windows? Here is an easy three step test to find out:
- Air Flow- Walk by your windows. Do you feel air coming through the frame or around the exterior? This is a sure sign of a problem. This means that there is enough room for the outside air to come in. Do you know what else has room then? Bugs, water, small critters…you get the picture.
- Operate the Window- Try to open and close the window. Also, try to lock it. If you can’t do any of these actions, you need new windows. They aren’t just failing to provide the option of air flow, but they also are a safety hazard.
- Look Through It- If you can’t look through it because of fog, you probably want to look for new windows. There could be a moisture build up problem that might be affecting more than just the window panes. If you can look through it but notice cracks, now is a good time to get those replaced before they become a big problem.
Windows are imperative to the value and security of your home. Don’t wait until it’s too late. You might be trying to save a few dollars by keeping them, but they could cost you even more in energy bills, water damage, pest control, or compromise your safety.
