Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Asheville, and there are a handful of things that you could check 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 comfortable as we go back and forth with winter for a bit longer. 

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

  • Check your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old 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 more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other things that have been around for a while, advancements in technology have allowed for improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

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