Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Wellesley, 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 few tips to help keep your home comfortable as we deal with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it may help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Wellesley. 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, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any parts 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.

  • Purchase 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 many other products that have been around for decades, developments in technology have enabled better 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 barrier to your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a number 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.
