Is it Time for New Windows

Your windows can lose their 
efficiency over time, so it’s 
wise to check that the seals 
between the glass, frames and 
rough openings are intact. To 
do so, hold a candle flame 
near the edges while your air 
conditioning unit blower is off. If 
the candle flickers noticeably, it 
could indicate a draft that needs 
proper insulation – or a crack 
that needs repair in order to 
prevent further loss of expensive 
“conditioned” air. Other 
problems that may indicate 
you need new windows include 
moisture-damaged or rotted 
frames, condensation or fogging 
between double glazed panels, 
rattling or sticky operation, and 
poor noise filtering.
