Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Hanover, and there are a couple things that you could address with 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 couple tips to help keep your home cozy as we put up with winter for a bit 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 Hanover. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase 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 products that have been around for decades, advancements in technology have enabled better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Add storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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