Published on

The dead of winter is almost here once again in Winston-Salem, and there are a few 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 couple tips to help keep your home comfortable 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 unpredictable weather that comes through Winston-Salem. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Check 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 parts that are worn out or torn could 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 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 things that have been around for a bit, advancements 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?

  • Add storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring 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 number of other factors that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
