Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in West Springfield, MA From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The middle of winter is almost here once again in West Springfield, and there are a handful of things that you could prep 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 handful of tips to help keep your home warm as we put up with winter for a short while 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 heads to West Springfield. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn may allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a bit, developments 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 bills now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can add 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 variables that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you on the right track.
