Window Maintenance Tips for the Winter
Keeping your home toasty and your family comfortable can be a constant battle during the winter months in New England, especially if your windows are past their prime. If you’re tired of drafts from inefficient windows forcing your home’s heating system to work overtime, here are some window maintenance tips that can help prepare your windows for winter.
Remove Dirt & Debris
Leaves, dirt, and other debris can get into the moving parts of your windows, so it’s important that you clean your windows out thoroughly to ensure a tighter seal when they’re closed.
Check the Caulking & Weatherstripping
The weatherstripping around your windows is subjected to the elements year-round and can become loose, worn or brittle. Likewise, window caulking can fail as it gets older. Make sure you reattach or replace all weatherstripping and reapply caulking where needed to ensure that cold air is kept outside where it belongs.
Consider Cellular Shades
As a last line of defense, cellular shades can provide additional insulation for your windows, helping to keep the cold from invading your home.
