Now that fall is here, you can start on your maintenance projects. Proper maintenance can repair damage received during the early part of the year and prepare for the upcoming months. One way to start preparing your home is to ensure healthy windows.
Windows let in ventilation and give great outdoor views. Keeping these in good shape this fall is important so you can have more savings in terms of energy efficiency and comfortable indoor environment. Here are some maintenance tips to help you get started:
- Check for damaged window components and have them replaced immediately.
A window’s overall performance depends on its components. When one component fails, your window will not function properly. If you notice broken glass panes, brittle window frames, or condensation in glass, have Renewal by Andersen® of Western NY replace your old windows. We offer high-quality bay windows in Buffalo, NY, and other styles that will ensure long-lasting performance under any weather condition.
- Seal any gaps around the frame with insulating foam.
Proper caulking and weather stripping prevents air from leaking. This way, you can contain warm or cool air inside your home, leading to a comfortable indoor environment.
- Clean your windows according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Windows are made from different materials, and manufacturers know how to maintain them properly. Make sure you use the right cleaning materials that will not damage your windows.
- Weatherproof your windows to ensure energy efficiency.
Weatherproofing your windows can lead to great savings in terms of energy consumption. You can also rely on the energy-efficient options from Renewal by Andersen of Western NY. We use High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages that can warm or cool your home in any season. Our Fibrex® frames also add insulating factor.
