Chilly months in
Gaithersburg 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 assembled a handful of pointers
that you can take care of now to help prepare your home for the
remainder of winter.
- Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean higher costs on your monthly costs and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you increase
your energy efficiency and help guard your
home from the weather in Gaithersburg.
an energy audit: An energy audit may seem a little
daunting, but it’s as basic
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 reduction in your home’s energy
efficiency and an uptick in your monthly energy expenses.
- Exchange 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 might 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 can help
you save for years to come.
