Spring is on the horizon and while we may want to leave winter behind after weeks buried under ice and snow, now is a good time to reflect on how your home fared through the winter. Take a tally of the weather weak spots in your home and act on any lessons learned.
Did the single digit temperatures reveal certain rooms in your home that are much colder than others? Could you feel the frigid air blowing in through your windows? As the weather grows warmer, the right time to address these issues in your home presents itself.
For the room that is much colder than the others in your home (a very common occurrence in the older homes especially) consider blowing insulation into the walls. It will provide the warmth you need and keep the room toasty and comfortable – and its easier to do than you think!
For those beautiful original windows your house proudly wears after so many years of life, give them a face lift by having them restored. Refurbished windows provide as much energy efficiency as replacement windows and last even longer. Original windows are made from quality materials that are far superior than the typical replacement windows. Plus an original window always looks more beautiful than a replacement!
