Paying attention to your windows is important. It can help you uncover things about your home’s condition. By examining your windows on a regular basis, you can deal with minor issues in your home before they become more of a problem. If you notice these things, your windows are trying to tell you something.
Your window is trying to tell you that the wood is swelling. Wood windows expand when the humidity is high or when they are damp. If the window operates smoothly again when the humidity decreases, then you can simply sand down the wood planes down to make your window open and close more easily all year-round. You can also try adding a silicone lubricant to the track to see if that helps the situation. If neither of those two DIY remedies work, contact a trusted window expert near you.
This is a pretty good indicator that you have condensation inside the center of your glass. This happens with double-pane windows that are filled with argon gas. As windows get older, the the gas leaks out from between the panes and settles in the bottom of the window. At this point, you’ll need to replace your window because it is no longer providing adequate insulation.
This means that there is a high level of moisture in the home. Moisture forms as condensation on the windows when the temperatures dip below freezing. If you notice this problem, take steps to determine where the moisture is coming from and fix the issue. Otherwise, you run the risk of mildew, mold or eventually rotting window sills.
If your window panes are warm to the touch during the summer, then it is time to replace your windows. This is your window’s way of telling you that it is not effectively insulating your home.
Your windows should be airtight. Drafty windows mean that air is getting in somehow.
You’ll need to discover where the leak is coming from and remedy the situation. Even if chilly air is coming in through your window, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will need to replace it. You may just need to repair broken panes or add weatherstripping. It is best to contact a window specialist to determine what the issue is and how to resolve it.
Water leaking around your window means that your window is not closing properly. Inspect the window to determine why it is not closing. Sometimes rain can get in the track, and it doesn’t drain all the way. Check the tracks for water to see if this is the case. If the window appears to be shut tightly and water is leaking around your window, it could indicate that you have a problem with your siding or roof. Either way, you’ll need to discover where the water is leaking from so that you can fix the issue.
