Spring has sprung – and while many will be glad to see longer days and sunnier skies, quite often there is frustration to see that as the sun shines through the window, a misted unit can put a dampener on the brightest of days.
Unsightly they may be, but misted units are very common and the replacement of them is easy, cost effective and can transform the look of a room that has been spoiled by a misted window unit. Quite often, people think they can be repaired, and there are companies that offer this service, but a replacement for a brand new unit can be cost-comparable and will last for many more years.
The best advice for consumers who are interested in having misted unit replaced is to measure the window to get an approximate size – a good rule of thumb is to measure the glass that is visible and not to worry too much about accuracy, small marginal differences really won’t affect the quote. If there is any lead pattern in the unit, or it is toughened (for instance in the bottom panel of a door or any window that is less than 800mm from the ground) it is advisable to mention this when obtaining a quote, as it does affect the price.
Many consumers are surprised that a problem they may have been putting up with for some time is so easily remedied. A unit replacement can make their misty days instantly brighter!
