Your windows say a lot about a home. They are one of the first things guests see when they arrive. And the right windows can deliver curb appeal while complementing your home’s look and style. However, when windows aren’t properly installed, or if they’ve become worn down over time, they can have the opposite effect. Cloudy windows, drafty windows, and damaged frames can detract from your home’s beauty and energy efficiency. There are several signs that can indicate when windows need to be replaced. If you notice any of the following in the windows of your Beaumont home, it’s time to reach out to the experts at Relief Windows.
1. Cloudy Windows
Well-insulated windows should not appear cloudy. When they do, it’s often a sign that the integrity of the windows has been compromised and they can no longer effectively keep out moisture. This is also a common problem with older windows that were not designed with modern insulation technology. While there are some DIY solutions for cloudy windows, they can actually make the problem worse if they are not implemented properly.
However, our professionally installed windows can replace cloudy windows with beautiful, energy-efficient options designed to stand up to the elements. Our Jeld-Wen, double-pane wood windows are designed with Auralast technology, providing some of the strongest protection available. Auralast is a deep-penetrating vacuum process that seals into the wood to prevent water saturation, rot, and termite damage. These windows are backed by a limited lifetime warranty, so you can feel confident that your Jeld-Wen windows will stand the test of time.
2. Windows That Stick
If your windows get stuck when you try to open or close them, it could be a sign of window damage. These actions should not require much force from the homeowner. Some windows can swell over time with water saturation. Other times, painted windows can degrade over the years and make opening and closing difficult when it used to be simple.
Professionally installed vinyl windows from Relief can make operation fast and simple again. They also provide enhanced efficiency that can help you save on home energy costs. So, if you are sick of windows that stick, it’s time for a real upgrade.
3. Poor Energy Efficiency
Do your energy bills tend to skyrocket in the summer? If so, your windows could be the culprit. When windows don’t properly insulate a home, it can cause your A/C unit to work overtime during the summer, allowing cold air to leave through the windows and warm air to enter. The same thing can also happen during the winter, with warm air leaving your home and cold air entering through the windows. Every window sold at Relief Windows in an Energy Star product, which means it is designed to promote energy efficiency. Some customers have even reported energy bill savings of $350 to $200 after getting new windows installed.
