Ensure Windows are Properly Sealed
Invest in some weather strips for drafty windows to create a more consistent indoor temperature. Drafty windows will constantly leak heated air, causing your heater to work overtime to compensate, costing you money. Poorly sealed windows are also susceptible to fogging up, negatively effecting curb appeal. Glass Doctor of Victoria will perform a free in-home evaluation during a time that works best for you and seal windows as needed. For older windows, however, upgrading to more energy efficient glass may be the better solution.
Double pane windows are perfect for homeowners looking to prepare their house for the winter. Double pane windows or IGUs (Insulated Glass Units) are engineered to drastically improve the insulating properties of the home. Heat transfer is greatly minimized with these windows along with noise pollution. A pocket of air between the two panes of glass is often filled with argon or krypton to further enhance its insulating qualities. To resist moisture, an absorbing desiccant spacer is placed between the panes.
