Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Muncie, IN From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is upon us once again in Muncie, and there are a couple things that you could prep on your replacement windows and doors to help you ride out 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 comfortable as we deal 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 shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Muncie. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Look at 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 parts that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase 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 almost all other goods that have been around for a while, improvements in technology have permitted improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Install storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease 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 a few to get you on the right track.
