When the cold weather hits our region, it’s important to keep the heat inside in our homes. In addition to having our heating systems serviced on a regular basis, it is a good idea to check windows to help ensure that we are not losing heat through them.
A good way to start is by checking for condensation between the panes of glass in multi-paned windows. Make certain that the glass panes are clean, and check at several different times of day since temperatures and sunlight tend to affect visibility of fog/moisture between glass panes. The reason this is important is that when the seal is broken, the thermo-pane functionality is affected, this is when heat loss occurs.
Also, in homes with single pane windows, now is a good time to replace screens with storm windows.

Stay warm and prepared, everyone!
