Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Scottsdale, and there are a few 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 few tips to help keep your home warm as we deal with winter for a little while longer. 

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

  • Look at your weather stripping. Inspect the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check 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 get in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] 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 goods that have been around for a while, developments in technology have allowed for better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Get storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a host of other things that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
