Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Fargo, North Dakota From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Fargo, 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 comfortable as we go back and forth 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 shield you from bugs or other unexpected weather that comes through Fargo. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Look at 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 sections that are worn out or torn can allow cold air to sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] 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 almost all other products that have been around for a bit, advancements in technology have enabled increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Install storm doors. Getting 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 host of other things that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
