Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The dead of winter is near once again in Monroe, and there are a few 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 couple tips to help keep your home cozy as we go back and forth with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it might help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Monroe. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Inspect the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn may allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other things that have been around for decades, improvements in technology have enabled 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. Adding storm doors on your home can mean you have another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a host of other factors that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you on the right track.
