Are Your Windows Ready to Keep Out Cold Weather?

November 5, 2020

You may be ready for hot drinks and cold weather, but is your home ready for cold weather? In particular, are your windows ready to keep cold air from entering your home? The last thing you’d want is an expensive heating bill and a drafty house. Here’s what you can do to make sure that your windows are ready to keep the cold weather out. 

Caulk

An expensive way to seal your windows is to add some caulk. Filling the cracks and holes around your windows will ensure that cold air doesn’t have a place to seep into your home. The key is to use the right caulk for your windows. Experts argue that polyurethane caulk is the best type since it’s paintable, won’t shrink, sticks better, and won’t attract dust and dirt. 

Add Weatherstripping 

Weatherstripping can be inserted onto your windows to prevent drafts. They come in a variety of materials, including:

  • Felt
  • Open-cell foam
  • Metal
  • Vinyl

The material you choose will determine the cost of weatherstripping all your windows. Keep in mind that some materials are easier to DIY install than others. Also, note that some materials will be visible when the windows are closed, so consider that when choosing a material. 

Use Window Film 

Window film has a reputation of being good during the wintertime to keep the house cool while allowing the sun to shine through the windows. However, they can also be used during the winter to keep the house warm. While glass windows can allow a home’s exterior heat to seep to the outside, window film can absorb heat from the inside of your home and keep it indoors. It’s a cost-effective way to keep your house feeling comfortable year-round. 

Have New Windows Installed

If your windows are old, it may be best to have them replaced. Old windows allow cold weather to seep in and are not energy efficient. When you choose to have new windows installed, you can choose the type of windows you want to install. Most of your window options will be energy efficient. Having your windows replaced can end up saving you money in the long run.
