Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Peoria, IL From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in Peoria, 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 handful of tips to help keep your home cozy as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

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

  • Check your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to creep 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 direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a bit, improvements in technology have permitted improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can mean you have another barrier to 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 variables that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to start you on the right track.
