Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Nashville, TN – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The cold of winter is upon us once again in Nashville, and there are a few things that you could check 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 handful of tips to help keep your home cozy 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 might help shield you from bugs or other unexpected weather that heads to Nashville. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Check your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check 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 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 normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other things that have been around for a while, advancements in technology have allowed for increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can add another level of defense for 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 factors that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you on the right track.
