You look forward to spring for a variety of reasons. It’s a beautiful time of year in Roseville, CA! Who doesn’t enjoy watching the flowers bloom and the trees green up to their full glory. But there are downsides about spring too. Spring can bring things up with your windows that you may not have noticed before. Don’t despair, these things are actually good in the end, because they will allow you to take action before the hot summer months settle in and things get worse on your windows. So as you enjoy watching the spring flowers grow outside your windows, keep an eye on them for some of the things that spring can showcase within them.
Spring is typically rainy and you might notice that you have condensation between the panes of glass on your windows. Condensation is typical outside or even inside your windows at certain times of the year, but when you see it between the panes of glass, there’s a problem. That means that air is getting between your glass panes, where it should not be. Whatever type of insulating gas you had in there (if any) has leaked out and now, you have less insulation protecting your home. If air can get through enough to leak water as well, you need new windows. That’s all there is to it. But recognizing that now will help you get the windows you need before the hot summer hits.
You may have kept your windows closed tight for the winter so you could enjoy the warm air inside without letting in a chill. But in the spring, it’s time to throw those windows open and circulate the stale indoor air with something fresh! As you open one window after another, you may notice that one or more of them stick shut. If you have to work to get them to open, they’re just not operating properly. That probably means there are other issues with the window as well. They may not be energy efficient any longer. You might want to look into repairs to get them to function better or, in the worst case scenario, you might need replacements. However, it’s good to know that before summer so you can cool your home efficiently without worrying about your bills.
Spring is lovely in a number of ways and while you go about your spring cleaning and other chores, take notice of what the season is telling you through your windows. It’s a great time of year to get replacement windows if that ends up being what you need. If you don’t’ know for sure either way, contact the professionals at Southgate Glass by calling 916-476-8396.
