As we turn the corner in to autumn, we begin to feel the chill in the air, even in the subtropical region of Gold Coast. We find ourselves closing our windows and doors more readily, keen to keep the warmth indoors.
Weather pile on our windows and doors is what keeps our homes liveable in the winter months. Typically mohair, is installed when the windows and doors are first made. It fills the gaps between windows and doors in the frames, keeping that cool air at bay, and outside, where it belongs.
However, because it serves as a point of friction, these seals can easily become worn, and ineffective seals offer little protection against the ingress of air from outside. If you notice your windows are whistling, your seal is not working properly. And of course, leaking seals will lead to you cranking the heater more often through the winter months, a serious financial burden during this time of high energy costs, and an inconvenience for any home.
Especially if your windows and doors are opening frequently, or are over five years old, you could easily be in need of new seals. At Central Glass, we provide new mohair strips, and ship them throughout Australia. Once they arrive at your door, our informative Youtube channel will allow you to replace the seals quickly and easily, replacing the worn ones, and ensuring a tight seal.
As a plus, this insulating quality will help you to not only keep the cold air out – it will aid you in keeping the cool air in, when the warm weather returns in the spring. Rather than running your air conditioning unit so heavily, you can simply shut it off throughout the day, and with blinds drawn, be assured that no air leakage will warm the interior.
