We are here to help residents and business owners in Burlington, ON to keep their homes and businesses more comfortable while saving them money with our window recaulking services.
Window recaulking is extremely important, especially for those living in the Toronto area. Both in winter and in summer, energy costs can be considerable due to heating and air conditioning. Window caulking that is faulty means that warm air escapes your home during the winter and enters your home during the summer. Consequently, your furnace and air conditioning systems have to work overtime. When they do so, your monthly bills rise, perhaps even skyrocket. What’s more is that they require maintenance more frequently and are more prone to breaking down even if they are serviced regularly.
There are a few ways that you can tell that it is time for window recaulking. Perhaps the most obvious is an energy bill that is higher than usual. If your bills start rising when you’re not changing your habits, there is a very good chance that it has something to do with your caulking.
Another way to recognize a problem is by feeling a draft or otherwise inconsistent temperatures in your home. If you sit by a closed window in the summer and it feels warmer than other areas of your home, accounting for direct sunlight, or you find the area by your window colder in the winter, chances are that you need new caulking.
If you would like another way to test for faulty caulking, carry a candle and move it around the edges of your windows, obviously at a safe distance. If the flame gets blown to the side, it’s a sure sign that it is time for caulking.
Fortunately, this can be fixed easily and for a long time. We guaranty our window recaulking jobs to last for ten years. That means that once the job is done, you can rest assured that your caulking will save you money for at least that long. We’re able to do this because of the quality of our workmanship and the materials that we use. Call us now to find out more about how we can meet your recaulking needs in Burlington, ON.
