Prepare for Winter with Replacement Windows and Doors

Preparing for Winter Weather with Replacement Doors and Windows in Traverse City, MI

Published on

Colder months in Traverse City can bring about conditions that can make our replacement doors and windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s why we’ve gathered a couple checks that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the rest of the season. 

  • Update your front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly expenses and a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors may help you increase your energy efficiency and help protect your home from the weather in Traverse City.

  • Perform an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a little daunting, but it’s as easy as walking around your home and checking that all of your doors and windows are functioning properly. Inspect the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky doors and windows can mean a reduction in your home’s energy efficiency and an uptick in your monthly energy expenses.

  • Replace old windows: Whether it’s because they’re simply 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 feature double-pane or triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and could help you save throughout the year.

Winter weather in Traverse City can switch things up without waring, which is why it’s important to be prepared and have your home prepped for anything that gets thrown your way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient.
