Windows / Doors

Heating and cooling make up about 50% of your annual energy costs. Are you letting this money go right out the window?

You might be, if your home's windows and doors don't provide an adequate barrier against outside air.

Window and Door Solutions
Avoid drafts that can add up to high energy costs by making improvements to your home's windows and doors.
  • Identify problem areas. Door and window frames are often less airtight than they should be. A home energy assessment will identify air leaks, and help you determine what repairs should be made.
  • Seal air leaks. Once air leaks in door and window frames have been identified, they are usually simple and inexpensive to fix. Caulk, spray foam, or weatherstripping can be used in these areas to stop air leakage.
  • Get extra protection. When winter weather strikes, make sure your windows and doors are prepared—screens should be replaced with storm windows or doors. Insulation film should be applied to older windows to provide an additional barrier against cold air.
  • Upgrade to Energy Star. Reduce your energy bills by up to 15% and lower your home's carbon footprint when you upgrade windows and doors to Energy Star models.
