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

The cold 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 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 protect 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.

  • Check your weather stripping. Check 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 pieces 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 straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other goods that have been around for a while, 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. Installing storm doors on your home can bring 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 factors that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to start you on the right track.
