Preparing for Winter Weather with Replacement Doors and Windows in Champaign, IL

Published on

Chilly months in Champaign can bring about conditions that can make our replacement doors and windows work a lot more than they should have to. That’s why we’ve gathered a handful of tips that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the rest of the season. 

  • Buy a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly costs and a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you boost your energy efficiency and help safeguard your home from the weather in Champaign.

  • Do an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a bit intimidating, but it’s as basic as walking around your home and making sure that all of your doors and windows are functioning properly. Look at the 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 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 swapping 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 can help you save throughout the year.

Chilly weather in Champaign can change quickly, which is why it’s important to be prepared and have your home prepped for anything that gets thrown your way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient.
