Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Indianapolis, IN From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Indianapolis, and there are a couple things that you could prep on your replacement windows and doors to help you stay comfy during 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 warm as we go back and forth with winter for a little while longer. 

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

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

  • Buy replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other things that have been around for a while, improvements in technology have enabled better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Add storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have another level of defense 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 factors that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to keep you on the right track.
