Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Albuquerque, New Mexico From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Albuquerque, and there are a handful of 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 few tips to help keep your home warm as we deal 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 may help guard you from bugs or other unexpected weather that heads to Albuquerque. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Check 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 parts that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get 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 products that have been around for a while, advancements in technology have enabled increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Install storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another level of defense 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 variables that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
