Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Oklahoma City, OK – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Oklahoma City, and there are a few things that you could address with your replacement windows and doors to help you take on 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 comfortable as we go back and forth 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 protect you from bugs or other unexpected weather that comes through Oklahoma City. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn may allow cold air to get in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other things that have been around for a while, advancements in technology have allowed for 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. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have 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 factors that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to start you on the right track.
