Published on

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Grand Rapids, and there are a few things that you could prep 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 handful of tips to help keep your home cozy as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it might help guard you from bugs or other unexpected weather that heads to Grand Rapids. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

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

  • Get replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other products that have been around for a while, advancements in technology have enabled better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Add storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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