Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Boise, ID From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is upon us once again in Boise, and there are a few 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 handful of tips to help keep your home comfortable as we go back and forth with winter for a short while 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 crazy weather that goes through Boise. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any sections 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.

  • 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 most other goods that have been around for decades, advancements in technology have permitted better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Get storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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