Embrace the winter season with preparedness as the first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere on December 21st brings the chill and snow. Just like we switch to warmer attire, our homes too require special attention during these colder months. Today's blog focuses on vital tips to keep your windows and doors in top condition this winter, particularly crucial for those residing in the colder East Coast region.

1. Consistent Cleaning of Windows and Doors:


Even though winter might seem still, dust and debris continue to gather on your windows and doors. This accumulation can lead to drafts and reduced energy efficiency. Regular cleaning, both inside and out, is crucial to prevent this buildup. We recommend a monthly clean with water or a suitable cleaning solution to maintain the integrity of your windows and doors.

2. Monitoring Your Home's Energy Efficiency:


Keep an eye on your home’s energy performance. This includes tracking electricity bills and the time taken to heat your home to a specific temperature. Compare these figures annually to identify any drop in efficiency. Early detection and action can save you from increased bills and environmental footprint.

3. Inspect for Damage:


Winter's temperature fluctuations can cause your windows and doors to crack, leading to energy leaks, potential mold, and pest entry. Cracks can also lead to creaky hinges and condensation issues, resulting in water damage. It's vital to inspect your windows and doors for any signs of such damage. If you spot any, it might be time to consider a replacement.

4. The Crucial Role of Expert Inspection:


Securing a professional evaluation of your windows and doors as winter approaches is key to pinpointing potential issues early on.
