When you are driving down the road in your car on the streets of Rocklin, CA, and you hear a noise, your car might be trying to tell you something. Maybe you need to get the brakes checked or perhaps the engine needs a tune-up. You don’t ignore the sounds your vehicle makes, so why should you ignore the windows on your home? Windows are an important part of any house because they make up so much of the structural integrity. They affect appearance, energy efficiency, and a number of other things. What are your windows trying to tell you? Are you even listening? Let’s take a look at a few situations in which your windows might be trying to get a message across to you.
If your window is hard to pry open and impossible to close, it’s trying to send a very clear message. The windows are dangerous! It’s that simple. You might not think so. After all, isn’t it actually safer when windows won’t open with ease so intruders can’t get in? Not exactly. Windows that old are often equipped with single-pane glass, which is very easy to break. Plus, what if you have to get out in an emergency situation? You’re doomed! And, if you ever do get the window open, it could slam shut at any point and break, causing injuries to those around it. Windows that don’t open and close should be replaced. Windows are meant to open and close! That’s all there is to it.
If your windows insist on letting air into your home, your level of comfort in the house will go way down. Not only that, but your HVAC system has to work harder to keep up with the temperature you want in the home. And you know if air is getting in, your air conditioned air is also getting out. That’s not the best for energy efficiency, now is it? You’re wasting money on your energy bills! Money you could put towards just about anything else.
There are a number of other things your Rocklin, CA windows could be trying to tell you. All you have to do is take a few extra minutes out of your day to think through their messages!
