Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Bloomington, IN, IN From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is near once again in Bloomington, IN, and there are a handful of things that you could check on 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 warm as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it can help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Bloomington, IN. 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. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to get in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] 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 almost all other things that have been around for a while, 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 expenses now?

  • Add storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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