Published on

The dead of winter is near once again in Kansas City, and there are a couple things that you could address with 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 few tips to help keep your home comfortable as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it might help shield you from bugs or other unexpected weather that goes through Kansas City. 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, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get 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 things that have been around for decades, developments in technology have allowed for 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 bring another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a variety of other things that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to keep you on the right track.
