Winter is coming, and you should prepare your home for the beginning of the cold weather. Proper home preparation can save money throughout the winter months and create a more comfortable home through spring. Old, worn-out windows and doors are often the chill-causing culprits, letting warm air escape and allowing cold air to seep inside. Here are a few tips to winterize your windows and doors against the impending winds:
- Check weatherstripping around windows and doors for any leaks that could lead to heat loss.
- Examine frames around your windows and doors for signs of decay or rot. If any frames are rotting, consider replacing the windows.
- Inspect windows and doors for any cracks, gaps, or even broken glass. Replace the windows and doors if necessary.
