Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Westerly, Rhode Island – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Westerly, and there are a couple things that you could address with your replacement windows and doors to help you ride out 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 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 unpredictable weather that heads to Westerly. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] 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 products that have been around for a bit, improvements 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 expenses 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 severe weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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