Problems with the windows on your home can be more than just inconvenient; they could be costing you money. Cold and hot air drafts can force the furnace or air conditioner to work harder to maintain a consistent temperature in your home, which can cause your energy bills to increase. By repairing the problems with your windows, your home will be more comfortable and the repairs can reduce your energy costs.
One of the more common problems with wood-framed windows is not being able to easily open or close them. Windows often become stuck because the wood swells due to high humidity or the tracks are dirty or bent. Fortunately, companies that provide window repairs in Arlington can get the windows open and then repair and clean the tracks to make sure that they easily slide open or closed.
Replace Window Hardware
The window hardware on older homes may need to be replaced due to corrosion on the locks from moisture or age, the wood may have dry rot and the screws can no longer be tightened, or the hardware may be missing. These window repairs may be easy to do but depending on the age of the home, you may wish to discuss window replacement with a company that sells residential windows.
Repairing Double-Pane Windows
If your home has double-pane windows and one of the panes has been broken or cracked, then you will need window experts to repair it. Along with replacing the glass, the inert gas will also need replacing to provide the insulation for which the windows are known. If you are having problems with your home’s windows, contact AAA Glass to get a repair estimate.
Window repairs can make your home more comfortable since the temperature will be consistent and they can reduce your home’s energy bills.
