Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Danville, IL From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in Danville, and there are a few things that you could address with your replacement windows and doors to help you take on 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 bit longer. 

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

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

  • Get replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other products that have been around for a while, advancements in technology have permitted increased 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 decrease air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a host of other variables that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
