Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in El Paso, Texas From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in El Paso, and there are a few things that you could address with your replacement windows and doors to help you take on 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 comfortable as we deal with winter for a short while longer. 

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

  • Check your weather stripping. Inspect 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 sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too straightforward? 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 a while, developments in technology have permitted 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. Installing storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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