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

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Lethbridge, and there are a couple 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 handful of tips to help keep your home cozy as we go back and forth with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it can help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Lethbridge. 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. Inspect 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 parts that are worn out or torn may 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 direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other goods that have been around for decades, advancements in technology have allowed for improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Add storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can bring another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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