Baby It’s Cold Outside! How The Right Doors & Windows Will Conserve Energy & Keep Your Home Warm This Winter

Northern Virginia homeowners are preparing for winter! Historically the region experiences temperatures ranging from low 40s to under 20 degrees fahrenheit. With these temperatures our neighbors in Leesburg, Ashburn, Loudoun, and Fairfax use an incredible amount of energy keeping their home warm. 

Windows and doors play a significant role in maintaining warmth and insulation within a home during the winter months. Well-insulated windows and doors help to create a barrier between the interior and exterior of the house. Double- or triple-pane windows, as well as doors with proper insulation, reduce heat transfer, preventing warm air from escaping and cold air from entering.

Why Window & Door Installation Matters?

Correct installation of windows and doors is crucial. Improperly installed or poorly fitted windows and doors can create gaps that allow heat to escape and cold air to enter, compromising their effectiveness in keeping the home warm.

Additionally, many window and door manufacturers have specific installation requirements for their products. Improper installation can void warranties, leaving homeowners responsible for any future repairs or replacements. So now is not the time for DIY, contact a home contracting professional such as Care Contracting to ensure your doors and windows are installed according to the manufacturer’s guidelines! 

Best Windows & Doors For Insulation?

Owner and home contracting expert Chris Bazow can help you choose the most suitable products to keep your home insulated and beautiful! 


Double and triple pane windows provide better insulation, keeping the home warmers in the winter and cooler in the summer. Additionally, low-emissivity coatings on window glass helps to minimize heat transfer while allowing sunlight to enter. 


Regardless of the type of window or door, proper installation by skilled professionals is crucial. Correctly installed windows and doors ensure a tight seal and prevent air infiltration, maximizing their insulating properties. However, using products with Energy Star ratings, E-coatings, and weatherstripping provide strong insulation and seal potential air leaks!

While some homeowners might consider DIY installation to save money, improper installation can lead to issues such as air leaks, poor insulation, and reduced energy efficiency, potentially costing more in the long run. Hiring a professional contractor ensures a proper and efficient installation, maximizing the benefits of your new windows and doors.
