While Albuquerque is in the middle of the desert, winter can still drop to below freezing level. Especially during the middle of the season, residents still need to watch out for the occasional snow. This means that the season could still cause uncomfortable drafts and higher heating bills in your home.
With winter just around the corner, Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico offers this door and window checklist. As the top expert when it comes to replacement windows in Albuquerque, NM, we will help you ready your home for the cold winter months ahead.
This helps in sealing your home from the elements outside. By making sure that there are no gaps and cracks in between the doorjamb and the window frames from the walls, heated air cannot escape. Moreover, the cool air won’t seep in.
Same as the caulking, the weatherstripping on your door and window is a vital part that helps in sealing your home from the cold weather this winter. Make sure that the weatherstripping is in good condition. If it’s already cracking, you will have to replace it.
• Storm Windows
If you have storm windows, it would be best if you put them on as early as now. This will provide your home an extra layer of protection against the elements.
• Keep Your Doors and Windows Locked
This will create a strong seal that prevent heat from coming out and the cold air from coming in. Even when closed, an unlocked door or window can still allow air to escape.
• Replace Severely Damaged Windows and Doors
Inspect your doors and windows. Make sure that these are still in good condition. Check the frames, jamb, and the sashes. If there are any rots and other signs of deterioration, you will need to replace these.
