Heat loss mostly occurs in the windows of your home. This problem can be prevented by investing in double-pane or insulated windows. The space between the layers of glass is filled with gas, providing added insulation.
Read on to find out how to take care of your insulated windows from a trusted window replacement expert.
How to Maintain Insulated Windows
Fogging between the glass can occur once the thermal seals of these windows break. Seals can’t be fixed so you’ll have to get new windows if you want to keep your home comfortable and continue saving on energy costs.
Protect the seals of your insulated windows by opening and closing them gently. Banging the windows can cause the seals to break. As much as possible, don’t pressure wash your windows. The force of the water pressure can result in seal failure. Wash them by hand instead. Clean and lubricate the hardware, screws and moving parts of your windows once a year.
