Colder months in
Rochester can bring about weather that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve put together a couple tips
that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the
rest of the year.
- Get a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly costs and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors may help you increase
your energy efficiency and help safeguard your
home from the weather in Rochester.
an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a bit
daunting, but it’s as simple
as walking around your home and checking that
all of your doors and windows are working correctly.
Check the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy
efficiency and a boost in your monthly energy costs.
- Exchange old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just
old or if it’s because they’re only made up of single-pane
glass, you could save more than you’d think by switching out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows.
Replacement windows that feature double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and can help
you save throughout the year.
Winter weather in
Rochester can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be ready
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
Rochester, drop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
you’d rather, give us a call at 507-847-1060 or schedule an in-home consultation with us via the online scheduler.
