Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The cold of winter is near once again in Jackson, and there are a handful of things that you could address with your replacement windows and doors to help you ride out 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 comfortable as we put up with winter for a little while longer. 

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

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

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other products that have been around for decades, advancements in technology have enabled increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can mean you have another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help reduce 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 couple to keep you on the right track.
