Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The cold of winter is upon us once again in Providence, and there are a couple things that you could check on 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 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 lower the amount of drafts in your home and it can help protect you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Providence. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

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

  • Buy replacement windows. Too upfront? 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, developments in technology have allowed for better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Install storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can bring another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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