Colder months in
Grand Rapids can bring about weather that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve gathered a few tips
that you can take care of now to help prep your home for the
rest of the season.
your front door: Drafty doors can mean higher costs on your monthly costs and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors may help you increase
your energy efficiency and help protect your
home from the weather in Grand Rapids.
an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a tad
daunting, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and making certain that
all of your doors and windows are working appropriately.
Inspect the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a hit in your home’s energy
efficiency and an uptick in your monthly energy expenses.
- Exchange old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just
old or if it’s because they’re only made up of single-pane
glass, you could save more than you’d think by swapping your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows.
Replacement windows that feature double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and can help
you save throughout the year.
Winter weather in
Grand Rapids can change quickly, which is why it’s important to be prepared
and have your home prepped for anything that gets tossed your
way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large
role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient. If you’d like to hear
more about the replacement doors carried in
Grand Rapids, drop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
