Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is upon us once again in Haverhill, and there are a couple things that you could prep 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 cozy 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 protect you from bugs or other unexpected weather that comes through Haverhill. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • 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 pieces 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.

  • Get replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other things that have been around for a while, improvements in technology have enabled improved 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 bring another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a host of other factors that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to start you on the right track.
