During the winter season, your windows are at risk of freezing. This can be problematic as this can damage them, which can be costly to remediate. Thankfully, it is possible to prevent your windows from freezing in the first place. Read on as chimney repair services provider PJ Sullivan Construction gives you tips to help you prevent your windows from freezing this winter.
Use a De-Icer Spray
To prevent your windows from freezing this winter, consider spraying its exterior, along the window opening, with a de-icer spray. De-icers contain chemicals that prevents a window from freezing. However, keep in mind that these products don’t last long and may have to be re-sprayed a few times within a 24-hour period.
Reduce Window Condensation
Reduce condensation on your windows to keep them from freezing shut. You can easily accomplish this by maintaining low humidity in your home with some help from exterior renovation contractors and consistently keeping temperature in your home cool via proper ventilation.
Apply Weatherstripping and Caulking
On the other hand, if your windows’ weatherstripping and caulking are worn out, make sure to apply new ones to prevent moisture from entering through gaps, which can then freeze and affect the rest of a window unit. Make sure to choose self-adhesive weatherstripping for a fast and efficient installation. Caulk the bottom of the windows’ exterior as well to seal the small gaps and cracks where air can enter the windows.
