We’ve all been there, when we start to notice that the room we’re in feels just a little colder than it used to do, even though the weather and the temperature are the same.
There are a lot of reasons that this could be happening, but one of the most common is that the seals in your windows have failed, and they aren’t offering you the same protection they used to do. If this is the case for your windows then you probably want to consider looking into window replacement to fix the situation.
If you’re not sure whether your window’s seals are failing, or have already failed, here are some of the most common signs to look out for:
1.Draughts : Does it feel draughty near your windows? Can you feel cold or warm air pass over you when you’re sitting or standing by them? If you can and your windows are beginning to let in draughts, then this is a clear sign the seals on your windows have failed.
2.Condensation & Fogging : Commonly known as having “blown” windows, if you have condensation in between the panes of glass in your double glazing, or if you have a foggy or hazy view through that window, this is another one of the clearest signs that the seals in your windows have failed.
3.Higher Energy Bills: If everything in your home is staying the same regarding how much energy you are using in your everyday life, and you still find your bills rising, this could be a sign that your windows have failed seals and are no longer acting effectively at insulating your home.
