Windows and doors can cause a lot of energy loss in a home. Make sure you update your windows with energy efficient windows.

Exterior Doors

Exterior Doors can contribute to the majority of the air leakage in your home. Especially if the door is not properly installed, sealed, or very old.

When selecting the right type of door it is important to consider their Energy Efficiency Ratings. You will also want to make sure you have a professional install the doors, since most of them are now pre-hung and require the frame of your existing door to be removed.

Windows

What options do i have?

You can improve the energy efficency of current windows by doing the following

  • Adding storm windows
  • Caulking and weather stripping
  • Using window treatments or coverings

Of course if you have very old windows, replacing them is your best bet. Make sure you replace them with Energy Star Qualified Energy Efficient Windows.
