How to Prepare Your Windows and Doors for Cooler Weather

As the cooler weather sets in, you may feel its effects if your home’s windows and doors are old, broken, or not properly sealed. Whether the cold weather enters your home or heat escapes from it, both situations are not ideal. Not only can it be uncomfortable, but it can cause a significant decrease in your home’s energy efficiency.

Our team of trusted window and door replacement experts will be able to properly assess the needs of your home and work with you to establish an effective plan of action.

In the meantime, here are a few temporary solutions you can try:

  • Heavy Curtains: While this won’t fix an issue with the window itself, heavy curtains can keep cold air from moving into your home. Not only does this eliminate drafty conditions, but it can also serve as décor for your home.
  • Window Insulation Film: A plastic wrap material, window insulation film fits over the interior of the window and is used to block air from entering the home. You can find this at most home repair stores.
  • Rubber Weather Seals: Rubber weather seals are an effective and inexpensive way to keep cool air and weather out of your home. Installation is pretty simple and you can find these products at most hardware stores.
