Replace My Windows

Leaky seams, loose panes, and cracked glass force your furnace to run constantly are common tells that you may need to replace your windows. Try performing these five tests.

  1. Shake, shake that window.
    Window components should be tight and secure. Try shaking them gently. If any window pieces rattle, it means it is not sealed tightly, which air seeps in. Storm windows in particular are key culprits. When they get loose, they don’t protect as well as they should.
  2. Do you see lighting?
    Look for daylight around the window frame. Whenever you see light coming from the outdoors, you can be sure cold air is coming in too. You can fix this yourself by caulking or weather-stripping the seams.
  3. No cracks in plain sight.
    Look the windowpanes and make sure none of the glass is cracked. Even tiny fissures can leak air. If you’re finding cracked panes, it’s a big sign the windows need repaired or replaced.
  4. No pressure
    Seal all doors, windows, and vents, and turn on all kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans. Get a candle or a lighter and have it near the window, if there are leaky areas will draw the smoke.
  5. Check your locks.
    Make sure your windows close and lock properly. The locking mechanisms help the windows form a seal by putting pressure on them. This ensures they’re fully closed, with window edges coming into full contact with their seals.

A wide variety of replacement window products are available today, in a large range of insulation factors and features. Many people don’t know this, but there are even replacement window products available now, that have blinds or shades built right between the panes, allowing you to decide how much or how little light gets in, and since the blinds are actually inside the window, they won’t ever need to be dusted or cleaned. Another great feature is what they call a tilting sash, where the entire window can be laid down to allow you to clean the inside and outside with ease. Imagine the headaches you can avoid when you have to clean the windows on an upper floor, or in places where it’s hard to get to the outsides of the windows. Whenever people talk about window replacement, we almost always hear about triple pane windows and, yes, they are great, but they also aren’t the only thing available. It’s a good idea to talk to the contractors in Virginia Beach to see what replacement window product is right for you. When all is said and done, your energy bills will let you know if you have made a sound decision.
