Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Mt. Pleasant, MI From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is near once again in Mt. Pleasant, and there are a few 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 couple tips to help keep your home warm as we deal with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it may help protect you from bugs or other unexpected weather that comes through Mt. Pleasant. 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. Look at 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 could allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other goods that have been around for decades, improvements in technology have enabled improved 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 mean you have another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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