Colder months in
Springfield can bring about circumstances that
can make our replacement
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.
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. If you’d like to know
more about the replacement doors offered in
Springfield, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
