Prep your Pella storm door for winter

Prepare Your Entryway for the Winter Weather

Published on

Cooler temps are heading our way in Hanover and when the temperature lowers, the energy costs can often increase. There are several things that you can do to prepare for the chilly season and equip your home for the weather change. Storm door installation can help with your home comfort during the cold months, and Pella Windows and Doors is here to help prime your home for what’s ahead.

Are you wondering what is so significant about storm door installation? While storm doors are helpful all year long, here are several of the benefits that storm doors provide during Hanover winter:

  • They increase energy efficiency – Storm doors are one added layer between the outdoors and the inside of your home. Their glass covering option decreases energy loss and can help save you some money on your heating this winter.
  • They increase home security – Just as storm doors provide an added layer of protection from the elements, a locked storm door also gives another barrier for burglars or other unwanted guests.

Storm door installation is a great way to prep your entryway for the upcoming winter, but here are other ideas to save some money in your home as the colder weather arrives:

  • Check weather stripping. When your weather stripping is loose, cold air can find its way in and affect your home comfort. If you have questions about reattaching or replacing loose weather stripping surrounding the doors and windows, give our Pella Hanover experts a call and we’ll be happy to help.
  • Clean window sills and moving parts. Debris can get caught in the moving parts of your windows and doors, especially in your window sills. Take a dry paintbrush and clear these areas to make a tighter seal and enhance your window and door performance.
  • Repair damaged exterior surfaces. Any weak spots on the foundation of your home, for example deteriorating siding or a cracked roof spot, could allow cold air to come into your home. Chat with a professional to repair these issues before the winter hits Hanover.

If you have additional questions about how to prepare your house for the colder weather, or about storm door installation this winter, give the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Hanover a call at 781-826-8005 or stop by our showroom to chat face-to-face with our experts. We want to help get your home ready to handle the change in seasons.
