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

The dead of winter is almost here once again in Lafayette, and there are a few 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 few tips to help keep your home comfortable as we go back and forth 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 shield you from bugs or other crazy weather that heads to Lafayette. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Check 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 could 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.

  • 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 things that have been around for decades, improvements in technology have allowed for increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Get storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have another barrier to your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a number of other things that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
