Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Sunset Hills, MO – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Sunset Hills, and there are a couple 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 handful of 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 decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it may help guard you from bugs or other unexpected weather that goes through Sunset Hills. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

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

  • Get replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other goods that have been around for a bit, improvements in technology have enabled increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Install storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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