Prepare Your Windows and Doors for Winter Weather

In times of winter, your windows and doors are the main areas where cold air seeps through and gets to your house. This calls for extra work on the same in order to ensure that there is no loss of energy. As winter approaches, you have to be prepared for the extreme weather. This calls for a careful check on every door both inside and outside. You should also check your window panes for cracks and the frames for crevices. Do the same for the door frames. If you notice any movement of air at these places, then that is a trigger that you should seal them.

Testing for weaknesses

There are several ways through which you can test for draft on windows and doors. Light a candle and pass it gently on the window sill. If you notice the flame flickering, that is a sign of draft.  Make a note of the area as it will require some type of insulation or replacement.  Another way is by taking a piece of paper and placing it between the door and its frame. Close the door and try pulling out the paper. If it tears, that is a good sign. However, if it comes out intact, you need to seal the area. At night, pass the back of your hand on window frames and sills. If you feel some cold air hitting it, that is a sign that there is a crack you should seal.

Preparations:

Having established areas where there are cracks, you need to move with speed and seal them. There are different types of sealing material available affordably. This is not something that you can do in a day. It is a process that can take […]

When Is It Time To Replace Your Windows

Replacement Windows in Utah can help to keep energy bills down and enhances the appeal of your home. You can do your part by replacing windows and sealing up holes. Good use of the heating and cooling systems is also vital. Try turning up and down the heater all day and see how that affects your bill. Or better yet, just keep the flow of air steady. Here are signs that it is time to consider the replacement costs of new windows. In the long-term they can save you money and problems like noise pollution.
Single Panes
Double panes keep out the cold and heat much better than do the cheaper kind. They are especially good for areas that reach very low or high temperatures. So consider this option if you live in areas of Utah where snow falls and it gets freezing cold!
Condensation
Now check on condensation between window panes. Double or triple panes sometimes get all foggy and weather stained when they no longer keep out the rain. If you have a lot of condensation on the window pane, replace your windows soon!
Problems Closing
If they do not open and close easily and get stuck in their tracks, this is a sign that age and warping have taken their toll log enough. Old windows let in more outside weather. Make life easier each time you move them and invest in a new set.
Improper Seals
If the seals are broken, you need to replace the windows. Test to find leaks, whether they are air or water. Air leaks can often be found by taping a loose piece of tissue paper around the windows. Perhaps there are only one or two leaks. You may be able to easily seal them up with […]
