Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Fall River, and there are a few things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you take on 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 comfortable as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

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

  • Look at your weather stripping. Check 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 may allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other products that have been around for a bit, developments 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 costs now?

  • Install storm doors. Adding 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 host of other factors that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to get you on the right track.
