While the temperatures are still mild, homeowners across the region are beginning their exterior renovation projects. Although many of these renovations are done to improve the overall appearance of a residence, some actually improve the function of the residence as well. Some renovations that can improve the function and appearance of a residence are the replacement of windows and doors. This is because outdated windows and doors – as well as those that have been damaged—can allow an increase in air flow from outside into the home. Even if the increase in airflow is minimal, it can still play a huge role in maintaining the interior temperature of a residence throughout the year.
