Winter months in
Wilmington can bring about circumstances that
can make our replacement
windows work a lot harder than they should have to. That’s
why we’ve assembled a few tips
that you can take care of now to help prep your home for the
rest of the year.
your front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly bills and
a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you increase
your energy efficiency and help safeguard your
home from the weather in Wilmington.
an energy audit: An energy audit may sound a little
daunting, but it’s as basic
as walking around your home and making certain that
all of your doors and windows are operating correctly.
Look at the the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky
doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy
efficiency and an uptick in your monthly energy expenses.
- Exchange old windows: Whether it’s because they’re simply
old or if it’s because they’re only made with single-pane
glass, you might save more than you’d think by swapping your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows.
Replacement windows that have double-pane or
triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and can help
you save throughout the year.
Chilly weather in
Wilmington can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be prepared

way. Replacement doors and windows can play an important
role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient. If you’d like to learn
