Winter is finally winding down in Ohio; the warm spring weather that is just around the corner means that many homeowners will begin to be able to open up their windows and let in the fresh air. But that may be easier said than done, especially if the windows in your home are older. Windows that are even only 10 years old probably do not have the same energy efficient technology of windows that are being produced today. And the cold Ohio winters can only help to increase damages to your windows. Windows that are not energy efficient are allowing heat in the winter and cool air in the summer to escape your home; it is literally like you are throwing money out your windows.
There are many signs that your Ohio home may need its’ windows replaced. If there are noticeable gaps around the window itself, this mean the window is not properly lined up in the frame and air is entering and escaping your home. Windows that allow condensation to form on them; along with mold or mildew forming along the frame should be replaced. Other signs that your windows need to be replaced are if they are difficult to open or close.
Spring is the perfect time to take action and replace those old windows in your home with new energy efficient windows. At Window Nation we provide quality materials and installation, allowing you to have peace of mind that your replacement windows in Ohio will last for years and years. We also offer the most comprehensive lifetime warranty in the industry.
