Prepare for Winter with Replacement Windows and Doors

Preparing for Winter Weather with Replacement Doors and Windows in Springfield, IL

Published on

Colder months in Springfield can bring about circumstances that can make our replacement doors and windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s why we’ve gathered a couple tips that you can take care of now to help prepare your home for the rest of the year. 

  • Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly expenses and a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you improve your energy efficiency and help safeguard your home from the weather in Springfield.

  • Do an energy audit: An energy audit may sound a bit daunting, but it’s as easy as walking around your home and making sure that all of your doors and windows are working properly. Check the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy efficiency and an increase in your monthly energy costs.

  • Exchange old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just old or if it’s because they’re only made up of single-pane glass, you might save more than you’d think by changing out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows. Replacement windows that are made of double-pane or triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and can help you save month after month.

Winter weather in Springfield can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be ahead of the curve and have your home prepped for anything that gets tossed your way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient.
