Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Mankato, Minnesota From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is near once again in Mankato, and there are a handful of 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 couple 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 can help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through Mankato. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too straightforward? 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 decades, improvements in technology have enabled improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Add storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can add another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

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