Doors and Windows
  • Don’t remove storm windows or doors in the summer if air conditioning is used often. Storm windows and doors help insulate the home and keep the air inside cooler longer.
  • Replace broken window panes immediately. Cover the open pane temporarily with a tight-fitting piece of cardboard. If you have a cracked pane, tape the crack with weather stripping or freezer tape until you are able to fix it.
  • In addition to storm windows, use insulated or heavy curtains, especially on windows facing north.
  • During cold weather, take advantage of the sun’s warmth by keeping drapes open during daylight hours. To keep out the heat of the summer sun, close window shades and drapes in warm weather.
