Cold winter weather can be harsh on many areas of a home. Windows, in particular, can experience damage due to freezing or fluctuating temperatures during the winter months.
Watch for These Problems With the Windows
Look out for these common signs that your windows have been affected by the cold
- Ice Formation – When the outside temps fall, moisture can get trapped inside on the window panes. As the air gets colder and mixes with the warm inside air, the moisture can turn to ice. This can lead to damaged panes or dangerous mold or mildew growth.
- Excess Humidity and Condensation – excessive moisture in the house, mixed with cold outside air, can lead to interior condensation. Condensation between window panes is usually an indicator that replacement windows are needed.
- Air Leaks – when the temperature inside the house always seems chilly, and you are continually turning up the heat just to keep it comfortable, there are probably air leaks around the windows. Cold weather that damages the windows can result in broken seals or warped panes which allow the cold air to get inside.
Avoid Higher Energy Bills
When the windows are old or have been damaged, the air leaks can cause significantly higher energy bills in both winter AND summer. The cold air getting in during the winter means higher heating costs, and hot summer air getting in will keep the air conditioning constantly running. Now is the perfect time to have the windows inspected to see if there are any problems that have resulted from our recent winter weather!
