What Is a Seal Failure?

Windows tend to be one of the most likely places that outside air can enter your home or business. This also means that the heat or air conditioning inside leaks out, raising your energy bill and causing your environment to be less comfortable than it can be. On occasion, the leak is a result of a crack in the window pane itself. More often, however, the seal used on your window has broken or is otherwise damaged.

Are you dealing with a failed window seal? The window installation experts at APCO can help you determine if you need to repair or replace your windows! Contact us today.

Four Reasons Why Windows Seals Fail

As a homeowner, you know that regular maintenance is needed to keep everything in working order. The same goes for your windows. We’ve compiled a list of four reasons why window seals are likely to fail.

  • Age – It’s a fact that your window seal won’t last forever—but that doesn’t mean you can have energy efficient windows! By updating the weather stripping on your windows as and when it is required, you can ensure that it continues to work effectively.
  • Elements – Although windows are built to protect your home from the elements, they can become damaged from the elements outside. If water is seeping behind the seal, this can cause damage that you will need to address right away.
  • Mold – The window sill is a common place to find condensation with the fluctuating temperatures outside. If you are noticing condensation on your windows, or are actually feeling wind, then you need to have your windows checked to see if the problem is a seal.
  • Temperature – Sudden changes to the temperature can cause some types of window seal to crack shrink or sag which will make the weather protection less effective if it does not negate it completely.

When your current windows start to show signs of seal problems, it is often more cost efficient to upgrade to the newer energy-efficient windows that are now preferable. These windows come in different energy ratings. Windows that carry the ENERGY STAR® seal have gained approval by the Department of Energy and are your most reliable choice.
