Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Plattsburgh, NY From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is almost here once again in Plattsburgh, and there are a couple things that you could check 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 warm as we go back and forth with winter for a short while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it might help shield you from bugs or other unexpected weather that goes through Plattsburgh. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Inspect 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 sections 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 than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy 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 most other products that have been around for decades, 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 expenses now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a variety of other variables that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you on the right track.
