3 Ways Cold Weather Affect Doors and Windows

Understanding the effects of cold weather on your home’s doors and windows is crucial in maintaining their functionality and preserving your home’s overall comfort. As temperatures continue to drop during this time of year, various issues can arise, which can impact your home’s energy efficiency. Window World of Boston highlights three of the many ways cold weather can have an impact on your windows and doors.

3 Ways Cold Weather Affect Doors and Windows

1. Contraction

Cold weather can cause the materials of doors and windows to contract. This contraction can potentially create small gaps around the frames and sashes, leading to drafts and heat loss. In severe cases, contraction can cause cracks in the seals of doors and windows or misalign the frames, leading to further heat loss and potential damage. It’s crucial to regularly check your doors and windows for gaps, especially now that temperatures are dropping steadily.

2. Condensation

Condensation is another common issue in colder weather. As the temperature outside decrease, the warm air inside your home can lead to condensation on your windows and doors. While a small amount of condensation can be normal, excessive condensation can cause problems. It can lead to mold growth, water damage to the window sills and frames, and even damage to the surrounding walls. Proper ventilation and humidity control can help keep condensation in check.

3. Air Leaks

Cold weather can expose air leaks around your doors and windows, impacting your home’s energy efficiency and overall comfort. Drafts from these leaks can make your home feel colder, causing your heating system to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. This not only results in a less comfortable home but also higher energy bills. Ensuring your doors and windows are properly sealed can help prevent air leaks and improve your home’s energy efficiency.
