Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Murray, Kentucky From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Murray, and there are a handful of things that you could check on 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 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 may help guard you from bugs or other unexpected weather that heads to Murray. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old 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 more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy 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 many other goods 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?

  • Install storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a variety 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.
