Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Greenfield, MA From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in Greenfield, 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 few tips to help keep your home cozy as we put up with winter for a little while 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 goes through Greenfield. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Check your weather stripping. Check 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 can allow cold air to get 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 normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other things that have been around for a while, developments in technology have allowed for increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Get storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from severe 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 four to keep you on the right track.
