Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in South Burlington, VT – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The cold of winter is near once again in South Burlington, and there are a couple things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you stay comfy during 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 warm as we go back and forth with winter for a short while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it can help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to South Burlington. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn could 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.

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

  • Add storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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