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

The dead of winter is almost here once again in Ketchum, and there are a few things that you could address with 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 handful of tips to help keep your home cozy as we deal with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it might help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through Ketchum. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Inspect the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn may allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other products that have been around for a while, improvements in technology have allowed for better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Get storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can bring another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from bad 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 four to keep you on the right track.
