5 Signs Your Window Seals Are Broken
Broken window seals can do more than make your building look shabby. From higher energy bills to costly repairs, they can actually have a significant impact on your wallet and the comfort of your occupants if not addressed.
If you notice any of these signs below, your commercial building’s window seals might need to be repaired.
The window frame shows some wear and tear
Taking a look at a window’s frame is one of the easiest ways to check if its seals are compromised. If the window frame or the caulking around it is moldy, chipped, or crumbling, it most likely means that the seals are worn out.
There’s a lot of condensation
While some window condensation is nothing to worry about, condensation between the glass panes might be a cause for concern. Moisture can enter between glass panes when window seals are broken, causing that condensation to form.
Your energy bills have increased
Not only do broken window seals let air conditioning escape, but they also let hot air in. Your HVAC system then has to work harder to maintain the now hotter temperature, which leads to that higher energy bill.
You can hear more noise from outside
Window seals provide a certain degree of sound insulation. You should check your building’s window seals if it seems to be louder than before inside your building.
It’s difficult to open and close the windows
It becomes harder to open and close them as their seals deteriorate. So, damaged seals could be the reason you’ve been having trouble.
