Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The cold of winter is upon us once again in Casper, and there are a few things that you could address with 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 couple tips to help keep your home comfortable as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it may help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through Casper. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Inspect the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old 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 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 things that have been around for a bit, developments in technology have allowed for better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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