Winter is Coming! Any fans of the HBO hit series Game of Thrones should get the reference almost instantly. Anyone else can probably still follow along. Winter is right around the corner, making Fall the perfect time to start preparing your home for cold temperatures, snow, and maybe the occasional White Walker. Okay, maybe you don’t have to worry about ice zombies like they do in Game of Thrones, but you do have to worry about how your home performs in the cold.
Fall is the Perfect Time for Replacement Windows
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs, making windows an energy efficiency priority.
“Fall is the perfect time to replace windows and doors, before utility costs peak this winter,” said Bob Merrill, JELD-WEN executive vice president of sales and marketing. High utility bills are a clear indication that a home is rapidly losing heat. New energy efficient windows and doors can help save money and make a home more comfortable.”

More Energy Efficiency Tips
Perform and Energy Audit
“A survey of a home’s energy usage and costs can identify specific ways to reduce home energy bills,” according to JELD-WEN.
Homes that make improvements following an energy audit tend to experience savings as high as 40%. So what are you waiting for? Call a professional, or do your best to conduct a DIY energy audit. Start with your windows. Do they work properly? Are there any visible gaps? Can you feel a draft? If you notice any issues, try addressing them as soon as possible. Or, like we mentioned above, it may be time for replacement windows.
Consider Replacing the Front Door
“A home’s front door can play a vital role as one of the first lines of defense against the elements,” according to JELD-WEN.
Not only can new exterior doors increase your home’s value through greater curb appeal, but they can also make your home more energy efficient.
