  • Check your electric bill

Throughout the hot months you’ll be wasting your air condition will be working harder to cool and your house won’t be warming up during the cool months. This means that your windows are not insulating like they should me. Replacing your windows means efficiency in your bill and keep your home the temperature you want it to be.

One way to check leaks is by taking a candle near your problem windows and finding where the draft is. The flame will flicker and you’ll know that that window is leaking. This is due to older windows being single pane. Windows made today contain argon gas which also help them maintain the energy efficiency.

  • Don’t settle on repairing

You can repair anything, it doesn’t mean it’s going to work. Repairing will typically fix the problem for a short amount of time. If you are noticing condensation in your windows, repairing your window won’t fix that problem. That condensation will create a moisture build up that’ll eventually create mold.

  • Soundproofing
