Are you finally feeling the fall chill in the air? If so, it’s time to start thinking about giving your trusty windows some TLC so that you and your family can stay warm and toasty throughout the coming winter. To that end, here are three easy window maintenance tips from Renewal by Andersen® of Central Pennsylvania.
1. Replace Faulty Hardware
Inspect all the windows around your house to see if they are all working properly, especially those that haven’t been opened in some time. Check for stiffness and sticking and replace the locks, handles and hinges of windows that can’t be shut properly. This will help minimize drafts.
2. Repair Glazing
If you notice that some of your windows are clouding up and are becoming increasingly condensed, this could mean that the double glazing is beginning to fail. With winter just around the corner, be sure to get in touch with your window contractor and ask them if you will need replacement windows.
3. Give Your Windows a Good Cleaning
Wait for a cloudy day to schedule window cleaning. It may sound counter-intuitive, but sunny days aren’t good for cleaning windows because the cleaning solution can dry in the sunlight before you have a chance to wipe it off, leaving unsightly streaks.
Whether you are in need of simple double-hung windows or would like something more elaborate like bow and bay windows, trust in Renewal by Andersen of Central Pennsylvania to exceed all your expectations.
