While homeowners’ wants and needs for their properties are always changing with the world, one thing has always remained consistent: the need to be comfortable. Moreover, energy costs have risen over the years, and many people have more and more security concerns when it comes to break ins, too.
All this being said, quality windows are a must for any functional home, and some people simply don’t have them. Are your windows letting all your climate-controlled air out of your home throughout the year? Endeavor Exteriors is here to help.
Why Listen to Us?
As a professional window replacement company ourselves, we’re all too familiar with how windows can and should protect your home from the elements, intruders, and more. We wanted to take some time to share what we know about why windows leak, so you are equipped with the best knowledge to fix the problem.
Why Are Your Windows Leaking?
You can often attribute leaking windows to them being outdated, poorly designed, or damaged. But what does that really mean?
Typically, leaky windows are lacking the necessary features to seal your home off from the outside world. This includes built-in airlocks, weatherstripping, and other barriers needed to stop air infiltration.
Otherwise, air can easily infiltrate between the sash and the rails of your window or the sash and the frame. This can lead to a lot of issues within your home, including:
- Higher Energy Bills
- Inconsistent Temperatures
- Increased Noise Infiltration
What Can You Do About It?
If your outdated windows are leaking and leaving you with high energy bills and an uncomfortable home, it’s time to replace them. The good news? Endeavor Exteriors makes that process easy.
