Chilly months in
Des Moines can bring about circumstances that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot harder than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve gathered a couple checks
that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the
remainder of winter.
- Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an increase
in your monthly expenses and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors might help you improve
your energy efficiency and help protect your
home from the weather in Des Moines.
an energy audit: An energy audit may seem a little
intimidating, but it’s as easy
as walking around your home and making certain that
all of your doors and windows are functioning properly.
Inspect 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 expenses.
out old windows: Whether it’s because they’re merely
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 have double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and may help
you save for years to come.
Winter weather in
Des Moines can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be ahead of the curve
and have your home prepped for anything that gets thrown your
way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large
role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient. If you’d like to learn
more about the replacement doors carried in
Des Moines, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
