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

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Kingston, and there are a couple 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 few 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 decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it can help protect you from bugs or other crazy weather that heads to Kingston. Walk around your home and make 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, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn could 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.

  • Get replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other products that have been around for a bit, 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 bills now?

  • Add storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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