Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Springfield, IL – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The cold of winter is upon us once again in Springfield, and there are a couple things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you stay comfy during the long winter. Whether it’s caulking your windows or doors or adding a storm door, here are a couple tips to help keep your home comfortable as we put up with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it can help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Springfield. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other products that have been around for a bit, advancements in technology have allowed for improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Add storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a number of other things that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to start you on the right track.
