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

The middle of winter is upon us once again in Binghamton, and there are a few 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 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 may help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through Binghamton. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

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

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

  • Get storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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