Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Woburn, MA From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in Woburn, and there are a couple things that you could prep 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 few tips to help keep your home warm as we go back and forth with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it might help protect you from bugs or other unexpected weather that heads to Woburn. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • 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, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy 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 almost all other goods that have been around for a bit, developments in technology have enabled better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Install storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can bring another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help lower 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 couple to keep you on the right track.
