Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is near once again in Edmonton, and there are a handful of things that you could address with 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 handful of tips to help keep your home warm as we go back and forth with winter for a bit longer. 

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

  • Look at your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy replacement windows. Too straightforward? 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 products that have been around for a while, improvements in technology have enabled better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can mean you have another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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