Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in San Antonio, TX – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The cold of winter is almost here once again in San Antonio, and there are a few things that you could prep 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 couple tips to help keep your home cozy as we put up 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 guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through San Antonio. Walk around your home and ensure 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, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn can 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.

  • Get replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a bit, improvements in technology have allowed for increased 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 nasty weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a number of other things that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
