Colder months in
Traverse City can bring about conditions that
can make our replacement
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.
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.
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. If you’d like to hear
more about the replacement doors in-stock in
Traverse City, come by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
you’d rather, give us a call at 231-538-2175 or set
up an in-home consultation with us via the online scheduler.
