If you are building a new home, or renovating your current one, installing windows is a key part of the process. Sometimes, new windows can make an enormous difference in how energy-efficient a home is, so even if you have no major construction plans for the future, you may wish to investigate the possibility of having new window installation in Lakewood, WA.
For this job, you will need experienced installers, like those at Sunset Air. Putting in new windows isn’t a quick job that only requires putting a new window in place and screwing it down. Improper installation can lead to a host of issues that you want to avoid at all costs.
Some Problems That Can Happen Due To Poor Window Installation
- Heating and cooling loss: Windows are an important part of the insulation in a home. During temperature extremes, heat will attempt to move through the windows and will seek out any cracks or open spots to pass through. During hot weather, heat will enter through these cracks and make a house warmer, and during cold weather heat will escape and make a house colder. Amateur installation risks windows with poor sealing that will make your home uncomfortable and force your heater or air conditioner to work too hard.
- Poor positioning and sun exposure: Window installation is not just about putting the window in place; it’s also about choosing the right location and angle for it. A shoddy job of doing this will result in excess sunlight exposure that can damage your furnishings and raise your home’s temperature through radiant heat. (It can also result in windows that don’t bring enough sunlight inside.)
- Moisture: Improper sealing of a window can cause moisture to seep inside a home. Even a small amount of moisture trapped around the edges of the window can become serious when it freezes during the winter. The danger of wood rot and cracking is high even with only a small infiltration of water moisture through a poorly installed window.
When you hire on professionals in window installation to handle a job, not only will the job be done well to avoid all of these problems, but it will also get done fast, and you won’t have the terrible inconvenience of an open space in your walls for long.
