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

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Santa Fe, 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 put up with winter for a little while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it can help guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through Santa Fe. 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, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn could 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 direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a while, improvements in technology have permitted improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Add storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can add another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a variety of other things that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to keep you on the right track.
