Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Tucson, and there are a couple things that you could prep 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 cozy as we put up with winter for a short while longer. 

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

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Inspect 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 sections that are worn out or torn may 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 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 products that have been around for a bit, advancements 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. Installing storm doors on your home can bring another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a host of other variables that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you on the right track.
