Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Norwalk, CT From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in Norwalk, and there are a few things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you stay comfy during 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 deal with winter for a short while 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 crazy weather that goes through Norwalk. Walk around your home and make sure 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, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn may allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] 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 almost all other goods that have been around for decades, developments in technology have permitted increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Add storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can bring another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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