Are Your Windows Feeling a Little Drafty?

Windows and doors can account for over 30% of energy leakage in any home. This can lead to massive losses in energy during the heating and cooling seasons as well as spikes in your utility bills.

Are Your Windows Feeling a Little Drafty?

Drafty windows can be caused by a number of factors. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares a few tips on how to handle a drafty window effectively.

Temporary Fixes

If your replacement windows did not always feel drafty, regular wear and tear might be the culprit. This can cause the frames and sashes to gradually warp over time, allowing air to seep in and cause drafts. You can address these issues temporarily by using V-seal weather stripping to line the edges of the sash where it meets the glass.

Resolving Draft Problems Permanently

It’s important to understand that temporary fixes are so named because they won’t last very long. The best way to ensure that your windows are protected long-term against drafts is to call a professional for a full-on inspection. Only a certified contractor will be able to properly diagnose draft problems and recommend an effective solution. In some cases, the issue can be rectified via simple repairs, but in other cases full window replacement will be recommended.

Replacing Your Windows

If your windows are old, then window replacement is probably the most practical and cost-effective solution to drafty windows. Drafts might be a sign that your windows are approaching the end of their lifespan and need to be replaced. Delaying replacements can cost you more in energy loss in the long run.
