Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Charlotte, North Carolina – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Charlotte, and there are a few 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 bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it can help shield you from bugs or other crazy weather that goes through Charlotte. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Check your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out 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 sneak 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 usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other goods that have been around for a bit, developments in technology have enabled improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Install storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another barrier to your home and can help with protection from nasty 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 four to start you on the right track.
