Winter months in
Bloomington can bring about weather that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve gathered a handful of tips
that you can take care of now to help prep your home for the
rest of the season.
- Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly bills and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors may help you increase
your energy efficiency and help guard your
home from the weather in Bloomington.
an energy audit: An energy audit may seem a bit
intimidating, but it’s as easy
as walking around your home and making sure that
all of your doors and windows are functioning appropriately.
Inspect the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a reduction in your home’s energy
efficiency and a boost in your monthly energy expenses.
- Replace old windows: Whether it’s because they’re merely
old or if it’s because they’re only made with single-pane
glass, you might save more than you’d think by switching out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows.
Replacement windows that feature double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and may help
you save throughout the year.
