Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Colorado Springs, CO – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The cold of winter is near once again in Colorado Springs, and there are a handful of things that you could prep 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 few tips to help keep your home cozy as we put up with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it might help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Colorado Springs. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

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

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too upfront? 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 a bit, developments in technology have enabled better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Install storm doors. Adding 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 variety of other factors that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to start you on the right track.
