5 Signs Your Windows Are Causing Your Heating Bill To Skyrocket

If it’s become difficult to look out your windows and see a clear view due to a fog buildup on them, that could also mean your heating bills are too high. According to Garrety Glass, foggy windows like this happen when the seal around it is missing or deteriorated.

Most homes have insulated glass units (IGUs) within them. This is an important feature because it helps to make the glass more energy-efficient. However, to keep that seal around this gap between windowpanes intact, there needs to be an airtight sealant in place. When the IGU starts to deteriorate, that often leads to air loss. This may happen due to exposure to water, excess heat, or in some cases, just normal wear and tear.

Depending on the severity, you may need to consider window replacement to fix this problem. It could mean your energy-efficient windows are no longer able to keep air out.
