Chilly months in
North Carolina can bring about circumstances that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot harder than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve gathered a few tips
that you can take care of now to help prep your home for the
rest of the season.
- Get a new front door: Drafty doors can mean higher costs on 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 North Carolina.
an energy audit: An energy audit may sound a bit
daunting, but it’s as simple
as walking around your home and checking that
all of your doors and windows are functioning correctly.
Look at the the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy
efficiency and an uptick in your monthly energy expenses.
out 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 may save more than you’d think by changing
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.
Colder weather in
North Carolina can change rapidly, which is why it’s important to be ahead of the curve
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
