5 Ways to Help Increase the Efficiency of Your Old Windows

While you might appreciate the beauty and unique character of your old home, you might not appreciate the windows. Older windows can sometimes rattle in the panes, feel drafty, become frosty or foggy on the inside, look warped, or have trouble opening and closing. During the winter, you might especially wish for more energy-efficient windows. Sometimes, replacing each window in an older house is not an option, especially if you are on a tight budget. Fortunately, you can improve your windows so they are more energy efficient.
  1. Replace Old or Damaged Glass

Maintain Your Windshield to Navigate Low-Visibility Conditions

Vehicle windshields are at the mercy of the weather. Fog, dust, sand, and flying debris can cover windshields in messy coatings that limit drivers’ visibility. Windshields are also soiled inside by interior chemicals and coatings.

As autumn advances in Utah, be ready for storms and other low-visibility driving conditions by keeping your windshield in top shape. Here are some tips to help you see the road more clearly.

Clean the Outside Glass

You can see more clearly through clean glass. When you wash your car in autumn, pay particular attention to the window surfaces both inside and outside of the car.

Why Your Home Windows Crack and How to Prevent It

Your home windows serve several purposes. They provide natural lighting for the home, give beauty to your space, provide egress in case of emergency, and offer ventilation for every room.

However, when your windows crack, they begin to fail at most of their primary purposes; they no longer look beautiful and they leak precious heat and cool air, ruining the efficient climate control of your home. Windows can crack for several reasons, and when you know the reason, you can sometimes prevent the problem from happening again.

Learn some of the reasons why home windows break unexpectedly and what you can do to fix the problem.

Why Are My Windows Foggy? Information for Homeowners

Foggy windows can be a source of frustration for many homeowners. Foggy windows prevent people from being able to see outside properly, and they can even block some sunlight from entering the home.

Sometimes, foggy windows happen because the windows themselves are broken. Other times, foggy windows occur because of conditions inside the house. Knowing what to do about your foggy windows and what you can do to prevent them in the future can help you take care of your house. 

What Causes Windows to Become Foggy?

7 Common Causes Of Cracked Car Windows

When you think about automotive glass repairs, you likely picture starburst cracks from foul balls or deep rock chips on a windshield. However, side windows are just as vulnerable to nicks, cracks, and complete blowouts as windshields.

Automotive glass is designed to withstand the normal rigors of driving, but damaged car glass poses a safety hazard by reducing visibility and even creating a risk of injury. Side glass in particular shatters into smaller and sharper pieces than the rounded particles of broken windshield glass.

Understanding why side windows break can help you safeguard your car from this potential issue. In this blog, we discuss seven of the most common causes of car window damage.

What Our Clients Say

Hidden Gem

I had 2 windshields replaced on my previous car at a different glass company. I went back there and got an estimate for this windshield but thought I would get a second estimate from Central Glass. I am sure glad as it saved me over $140. This is now my glass company of choice.
