Winter months in
Northern Virginia can bring about weather that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot harder than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve assembled a few tips
that you can take care of now to help prep your home for the
remainder of winter.
- Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly costs and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you increase
your energy efficiency and help guard your
home from the weather in Northern Virginia.
an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a bit
daunting, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and checking that
all of your doors and windows are operating appropriately.
Inspect the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy
efficiency and an increase in your monthly energy costs.
out old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just
old or if it’s because they’re only made up of single-pane
glass, you could save more than you’d think by switching out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows.
Replacement windows that are made of double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and may help
you save month after month.
Chilly weather in
Northern Virginia can switch things up quickly, which is why it’s important to be prepared
and have your home prepped for anything that gets sent your
way. Replacement doors and windows can play a huge
role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient. If you’d like to hear
