Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Owensboro, 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 put up 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 guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Owensboro. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

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

  • Get replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other products that have been around for a while, developments in technology have permitted increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Get storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can bring another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help decrease 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 couple to get you on the right track.
