Chilly months in
Washington DC can bring about circumstances that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot harder than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve assembled a couple checks
that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the
rest of the season.
- Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in 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 Washington DC.
an energy audit: An energy audit may sound a little
overwhelming, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and making certain that
all of your doors and windows are working appropriately.
Check the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a hit in your home’s energy
efficiency and an uptick in your monthly energy bills.
out old windows: Whether it’s because they’re merely
old or if it’s because they’re only composed of single-pane
glass, you may save more than you’d think by swapping 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 throughout the year.
Winter weather in
Washington DC can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be prepared
and have your home prepped for anything that gets sent 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 hear
more about the replacement doors carried in
Washington DC, come by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
you’d rather, give us a call at (301) 327-3013 or set
up an in-home consultation with us via the online scheduler.
