Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Cheyenne, Wyoming From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is near once again in Cheyenne, and there are a few things that you could check 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 cozy as we go back and forth 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 may help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Cheyenne. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Look at 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 sections that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to get 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 upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other things that have been around for decades, developments in technology have permitted increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Install 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 lower air and moisture leaks.

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