Save Money This Winter With Dallas Window Replacement
With Dallas’ coldest month fast approaching, why not take a look at replacing your windows? Your expensive heating and air conditioning bill might have already given you a sign. Often older windows cause your utility bills to be much higher. If your windows are at least 15-20 years old, they’re probably causing issues simply because over time windows leak. It is definitely time for window replacement.
By the time windows start leaking they are no longer efficient. Cracks, compromised seals and misalignment not only brings in more cold but insects, rodents, moisture and possibly mold. Floors can also be ruined by rainwater or ice and snow melt. So once a window leaks your homeowner costs go up exponentially.
Winter drafts hardly get by undetected. Drafts not only seep in and increase your heating bill but they cause an imbalance in the temperature of the rooms in your home. Have you ever felt a cold draft around your ankles? Probably time to replace your windows.
Older windows often have alignment issues that can create small cracks that also cause leaks. Is the carpet or floor wet underneath your window? Does moisture build up on your window ledges? Do you have to put towels down around your windows after a rain or snow storm? Stop the annoyance by replacing your windows.
Another sign your windows in your Dallas home need replacement is the constant buildup of condensation and frost along your window sill. This build up usually appears on windows that have become uneven or damaged over time from wear and tear. One safety concern is this moisture buildup can quickly create mold.
