Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is upon us once again in Syracuse, and there are a couple things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you ride out 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 put up 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 can help protect you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Syracuse. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Inspect 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 can allow cold air to get 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 usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other goods that have been around for a while, improvements in technology have allowed for better 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 add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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