Prep your Pella storm door for winter

Prepare Your Entryway for the Winter Weather

Published on

The cold season is fast approaching in Cape Cod and when the temperature gets colder, the energy costs can often surge. There are a lot of things that you can do to get yourself organized for the chilly season and equip your home for the weather change. Storm door installation can help with your home comfort this winter, and Pella Windows and Doors is here to help prime your home for what’s ahead.

So, what’s so important about storm door installation? While storm doors are advantageous regardless of the season, here are a few of the benefits that storm doors deliver during Cape Cod winter:

  • They increase energy efficiency – Storm doors are an extra layer between the outdoors and your indoor comfort. Their glass covering option reduces energy loss and can help decrease expenses on your heating this winter.
  • They increase home security – Just as storm doors provide an added layer of protection from the elements, a locked storm door also provides another barrier for burglars or other uninvited guests.

Storm door installation is an ideal way to prep your entryway for the upcoming winter, but here are a few other ways to save some money around the house as the colder weather looms:

  • Check weather stripping. When your weather stripping is loose, cold air can trickle in and impact your home comfort. If you have challenges with reattaching or replacing loose weather stripping around your home’s doors and windows, give our Pella Fall River team a call and receive the help you need.
  • Clean window sills and moving parts. Debris can get caught in the moving parts of your windows and doors, especially in your window sills. Take a dry paintbrush and brush out these areas to make a tighter seal and enhance your window and door performance.
  • Repair damaged exterior surfaces. Any weak spots on the foundation of your home, such as deteriorating siding or a cracked roof spot, could allow cold air to sneak into your home. Consult with a professional to solve these issues before the colder temperatures hit Cape Cod.
