Winter months in
Long Island can bring about conditions that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot more than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve put together a handful of tips
that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the
rest of the year.
your front door: Drafty doors can mean an increase
in your monthly expenses and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors might help you increase
your energy efficiency and help safeguard your
home from the weather in Long Island.
an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a bit
daunting, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and making sure that
all of your doors and windows are operating correctly.
Check the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy
efficiency and an increase in your monthly energy costs.
- Replace old windows: Whether it’s because they’re simply
old or if it’s because they’re only composed of single-pane
glass, you could save more than you’d think by changing
out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows.
Replacement windows that are made of double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and could help
you save month after month.
Chilly weather in
Long Island can vary quickly, which is why it’s important to be prepared
and have your home prepped for anything that gets thrown your
way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large
role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient. If you’d like to hear
more about the replacement doors carried in
Long Island, come by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
