Air leakage. Air leaks waste energy and money because they permit air-conditioned or heated air to escape from your house while letting outside air in. As your Lehigh Valley windows get older, they will become less efficient. Drafty windows can occur when windows are not level and square, creating uneven gaps, or when there are gaps between the glazing and the frame. The best long-term solution is to get quality replacement windows that are guaranteed for the life of your home.
Broken seals. Age is one of the most common causes of air leaks and seal failure. In a window with more than one pane, if a sash frame separates or the seal is broken down by exposure to water or excess heat, moist air will collect between the panes. Fogging or condensation between layers of insulated glass is not controllable and is an indication of a broken seal. When seal failure happens, window replacement is the most viable option; it is very difficult to reseal old panes, making repairs cost-prohibitive.
Broken hardware. For your security and safety, broken window locks and latches should be inspected and replaced. Contact Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA to request service for your Renewal by Andersen windows.
Broken glass. If the glass in your window frame is broken, it can be replaced. Contact Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA to request service for your Renewal by Andersen windows.
Mold. Drafty windows or those prone to condensation can lead to mold problems on the sills, frame and other components. The presence of black mold can leave stains and cause a musty odor in your home. It also can be a health hazard, so it’s important to address a mold issue as soon as you notice it.
