Winter months in
Calgary can bring about weather that
can make our replacement
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.
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. If you’d like to know
more about the replacement doors carried in
Calgary, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
you’d rather, give us a call at 403-681-6363 or arrange an in-home consultation with us via the online scheduler.
