Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Terre Haute, IN – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is almost here once again in Terre Haute, and there are a handful of things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you take on the long winter. Whether it’s caulking your windows or doors or adding a storm door, here are a few tips to help keep your home comfortable as we go back and forth with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it might help protect you from bugs or other unexpected weather that heads to Terre Haute. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a while, developments 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?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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