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

The dead of winter is almost here once again in Albany, and there are a handful of things that you could address with 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 few tips to help keep your home comfortable as we deal 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 guard you from bugs or other crazy weather that heads to Albany. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn may allow cold air to sneak 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 typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other products that have been around for decades, advancements in technology have enabled improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Get storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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