Winter months in
Minneapolis can bring about circumstances that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot harder than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve put together a couple checks
that you can take care of now to help prepare your home for the
remainder of winter.
- Get a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly expenses and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you increase
your energy efficiency and help guard your
home from the weather in Minneapolis.
an energy audit: An energy audit may sound a tad
daunting, but it’s as simple
as walking around your home and checking that
all of your doors and windows are working properly.
Look at the the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a reduction in your home’s energy
efficiency and an uptick in your monthly energy bills.
- Exchange old windows: Whether it’s because they’re merely
old or if it’s because they’re only composed of single-pane
glass, you could save more than you’d think by changing
out 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 may help
you save for years to come.
Colder weather in
Minneapolis can switch things up without
waring, 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 an important
role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient. If you’d like to know
more about the replacement doors in-stock in
Minneapolis, come by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom. Or if
you’d rather, give us a call at 612-249-7371 or schedule an in-home consultation with us via the online scheduler.
