Winterizing Windows and Doors
As temperatures are beginning to drop, heating bills may be on the rise as this chilly season approaches. Here are some tips on winterizing the windows and doors of your home to lower your heating bills, promote regular maintenance, and get your home ready for winter.
It's important to inspect all of your windows and evaluate if they need replacing or maintenance. As windows get older they may crack or the seal around the window might begin to deteriorate.
Check for drafts by holding a lit candle close to the windows in your home and watch to see if the flame flickers. Flickering may indicate a draft. If cold air can enter your home then it's likely that hot air can escape. When windows and/or doors are drafty, your furnace works harder to heat the space in your home.
