With the cold weather getting closer, it’s time to make sure your windows are ready for winter. During the cold months, cold air can come in and warm air can go out if our windows are old, broken, or just drafty. Here are a few things you can do if you think your windows are drafty:
- Make sure your window’s hardware is locked so the sashes are snug.
- If you’re still feeling a leak of cold air, move any curtains or window treatments out of the way and hold a candle. When you see the flame turn horizontal, you’ve found a leaky spot. Do this throughout the window area to analyze the draft.
- Check any weatherstripping for drafts. If there’s caulk along your window, make sure it’s not dry or cracked.
- You can purchase a window-insulating kit which includes materials like shrink-wrap to help keep the cold air out and warm air in
If you’re still experiencing a draft, sometimes these home remedies are not enough. Your windows may need to be repaired by a professionally, or even completely replaced. If you’re ready to get your windows winter-ready, give us a call today.
