Published on

The cold of winter is near once again in Birmingham, 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 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 may help protect you from bugs or other unexpected weather that comes through Birmingham. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Inspect the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out 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 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 usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other goods that have been around for decades, advancements in technology have permitted improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Add 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 lower air and moisture leaks.
