Winter months in
Cape Cod can bring about circumstances that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve put together a handful of checks
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 an increase
in your monthly bills and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors might help you boost
your energy efficiency and help protect your
home from the weather in Cape Cod.
an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a little
intimidating, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and making sure that
all of your doors and windows are working appropriately.
Check the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy
efficiency and an increase in your monthly energy costs.
out old windows: Whether it’s because they’re simply
old or if it’s because they’re only made with 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 are made of double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and could help
you save month after month.
Winter weather in
Cape Cod can change rapidly, which is why it’s important to be prepared
and have your home prepped for anything that gets tossed 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 offered in
Cape Cod, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
you’d rather, give us a call at 508-638-5897 or set
up an in-home consultation with us via the online scheduler.
