Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Long Island, NY From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The middle of winter is upon us once again in Long Island, and there are a handful of 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 few tips to help keep your home comfortable as we go back and forth with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it might help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Long Island. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a bit, improvements 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 bills now?

  • Install storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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