Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Davenport, IA From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is almost here once again in Davenport, and there are a couple things that you could check 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 couple tips to help keep your home warm as we go back and forth with winter for a little while longer. 

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

  • Check your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other goods that have been around for decades, developments in technology have permitted better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

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

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