Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Concord, NH From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in Concord, and there are a handful of things that you could prep 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 couple tips to help keep your home cozy as we put up with winter for a short while longer. 

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

  • Look at your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get 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 many other things that have been around for decades, developments in technology have enabled improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills 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 decrease air and moisture leaks.

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