Preparing for Winter Weather with Replacement Doors and Windows in Calgary, AB
Winter months in Calgary can bring about weather that can make our replacement doors and windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s why we’ve assembled a few checks that you can take care of now to help prepare your home for the rest of the season.
- Get a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an increase
in your monthly expenses and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you boost
your energy efficiency and help safeguard your
home from the weather in Calgary.
an energy audit: An energy audit may sound a little
intimidating, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and making sure that
all of your doors and windows are functioning correctly.
Check the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy
efficiency and a boost in your monthly energy costs.
- Swap out old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just old or if it’s because they’re only composed of single-pane glass, you could 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 may help you save month after month.
Colder weather in Calgary can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be ready and have your home prepped for anything that gets thrown your way. Replacement doors and windows can play an important role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient.
