Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Hingham, MA From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Hingham, 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 few tips to help keep your home comfortable 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 protect you from bugs or other crazy weather that comes through Hingham. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old 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 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 normally 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 costs now?

  • Add storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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