Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Evansville, IN From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Evansville, and there are a few things that you could prep 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 few tips to help keep your home cozy as we go back and forth with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it may help shield you from bugs or other unexpected weather that heads to Evansville. 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. Inspect the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to get in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other products that have been around for decades, 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?

  • Install storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can add 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 factors that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
