Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is near once again in Kalamazoo, and there are a handful of things that you could address with 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 reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it can help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Kalamazoo. Walk around your home and ensure 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, check for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a bit, advancements in technology have allowed for increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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