Winter weather is just around the corner in Fargo and when the temperature gets colder, the utility bills can often increase. There are many things that you can do to prepare for the chilly season and equip your home for the weather change. Storm door installation can aid your home comfort during the cold months, and Pella Windows and Doors is here to help prime your home for what’s ahead.
What is so noteworthy about storm door installation? While storm doors are advantageous regardless of the season, here are some of the benefits that storm doors offer during Fargo winter:
- They increase energy efficiency – Storm doors are one added layer between the outdoors and the comfort of your home. Their glass covering option reduces energy loss and can help save you some money on your heating this winter.
- They increase home security – Just as storm doors provide an added layer of protection from the elements, a locked storm door also adds another barrier for burglars or other unwanted guests.
Storm door installation is a good way to prepare your entryway for the upcoming winter, but here are other ideas to save some money around the house as the colder weather arrives:
- Check weather stripping. When your weather stripping is loose, cold air can find its way in and influence your home comfort. If you have issues when reattaching or replacing loose weather stripping surrounding the doors and windows, give our Pella Fargo experts a call and receive the help you need.
- Clean window sills and moving parts. Debris can get caught in the moving parts of your windows and doors, especially in your window sills. Take a dry paintbrush and clean these areas to make a tighter seal and better the performance of your windows and doors.
- Repair damaged exterior surfaces. Any weak spots on the foundation of your home, for example deteriorating siding or a cracked roof spot, could allow cold air to come into your home. Chat with a professional to repair these issues before cold weather arrives in Fargo.
