Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is upon us once again in Boston, 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 couple tips to help keep your home cozy as we deal with winter for a short while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it can help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Boston. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn could 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.

  • Buy 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 goods that have been around for a bit, improvements in technology have permitted better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Add storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can mean you have another barrier to your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a host of other variables that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
