Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Calgary, AB – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is near once again in Calgary, and there are a couple things that you could prep on your replacement windows and doors to help you take on 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 put up 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 might help shield you from bugs or other crazy weather that comes through Calgary. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check 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 get in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too direct? 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 a bit, developments in technology have allowed for improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Install storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can add another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help lower 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 couple to start you on the right track.
