Colder months in
Asheville can bring about conditions that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve put together a handful of pointers
that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the
rest of the year.
- Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an increase
in your monthly expenses and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors might help you increase
your energy efficiency and help safeguard your
home from the weather in Asheville.
an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a bit
overwhelming, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and checking that
all of your doors and windows are operating properly.
Inspect the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a hit in your home’s energy
efficiency and an increase in your monthly energy costs.
- Replace old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just
old or if it’s because they’re only composed of single-pane
glass, you may save more than you’d think by switching out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows.
Replacement windows that are made of double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and may help
you save throughout the year.
Winter weather in
Asheville can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be ahead of the curve
and have your home prepped for anything that gets tossed your
way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large
role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient. If you’d like to know
more about the replacement doors carried in
Asheville, come by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
you’d rather, give us a call at 828-202-8673 or schedule an in-home consultation with us via the online scheduler.
