With the weather warming up, there’s a good chance you’ll want to use your windows more often. From there, as we move into late spring and summer, you’ll probably keep your windows closed and the air conditioner on.
At some point, you may realize that your windows are letting outside air in. There are many reasons for this, all of which you should address:
· Poorly installed windows
· Old windows
· Window seal failure
· Your windows aren’t energy efficient
· Cracks in your window caulking
Some of these issues are easy to solve. For example, if your caulking is cracked or has peeled off, you can remove what’s left and lay down a new bead.
Conversely, poorly installed windows, for example, require professional attention. There’s nothing you can do to fix this on your own.
Window drafts don’t always seem like a big deal, but this makes your home much less energy efficient. Not to mention the fact that drafty windows can also let in dust, debris, and insects.
