10 Ways to Protect Your Home from the Winter Weather in Minnesota

10 Ways to Protect Your Home from the Winter Weather in Minnesota

December 2020 by Heartland Roofing Siding and Windows

winterizing home in cold climate

The adage, “prevention is better than cure” is still applicable to date. The best time to prepare and protect your home from Minnesota’s tough winters is during fall. Take the time to identify the risk your home faces, and the measures you can take to keep it safe. Since Minnesota’s winters tend to be frigid, preparation and winterizing your house is key to going through the winter in safety and comfort. It is also a good way to avoid incurring huge repair bills in spring. As you prepare for winters, here are a few things you need to consider:

  1. Clean Your Gutters
    If your gutters are blocked, they can damage your foundation, roof, and landscaping. As you prepare for winter, you should at least clean your gutters in spring and fall. Apart from the occasional cleaning, you should also clean them after a major storm that tends to send leaves flying. The right approach is to clean from a ladder instead of the roof. If you can, get a spotter or hire a professional to do the cleaning for you.
  1. Seal Windows and Doors
    Your heating bill would increase because cold air is leaking easily through cracks around your windows and doors. Weatherstripping your doors and caulking your windows can help to keep the house warm. If the last time you did it was last time, then this is the time to go back and check whether everything is in place. Take time to inspect your weather-stripping and make sure there are no leaks. Get a window insulation kit and properly apply the wrap to the inside of the window for that extra layer of protection.
  1. Trim Your Trees
    Your trees can cause a lot of damage to your home if the branches fall on your roof. Apart from winds, winter snow and ice are common culprits for making tree branches to fall. Trimming the branches that overhang your house in time can play an important role in protecting your roof. You can also hire a tree surgeon to do the work for you and ensure everything is in place.
  1. Seal Your Deck
    To keep your home safe, you need to apply a good sealant every few years or choose from a range of available permanent sealants. While opaque stains tend to last longer, clear treatments last for shorter periods and need to reapply every year. Any unsealed deck will attract mildew that will likely rot. Take time to seal your deck in fall without having for spring like everyone else. This is also a good time to check the deck for any damages that may have occurred during summer.
  1. Check and Change Your Furnace Filters
    As you prepare for winter, check the instructions from your manufacturer regarding the filters. Some furnaces may need filter replacement only in the fall while others require checking through the winter. Take this time to ruin the furnace to make sure it still works before it starts getting cold.
  1. Clean Your Chimney
    You should clean your chimney early enough before winter. It is custom practice for individuals with a wood fireplace to clean the chimney to reduce the risk of fire. Doing so at the right time not only makes sure you are safe but also ensures you got a way of keeping warm in the cold season.
  1. Insulate Your Pipes
    For those with pipes in the basement, this is the time to cover them with foam insulation. Wrap the pipes outside with heat tape to reduce the risk of frozen pipes. This will also help in reducing any problems and damages that can be caused by frozen pipes in your home.
  1. Put Away Lawn or Patio Furniture
    Before winter arises put away or cover your lawn and patio furniture, grill, or other items that you had kept outside during summer. Ensure the outdoors is clean, all kid’s toys have been gathered and put into the garage or indoors.
  1. Reverse Your Ceiling Fans
    The rule of thumb is to run your ceiling fans counterclockwise during summer and clockwise during winter. This will ensure that warm air is moving in the right direction for the season. The good thing is that most ceiling fans are reversible but just pressing a button.
  1. Winterize Your Garden

Winterize your sprinkler system and unhook the hoses before the first frost. Make sure you have emptied the rain barrel and turn it over before a hard freeze. Failure to do so may cause it to crack or even explode in the worst-case scenario. Empty the gas tank of your lawnmower or use a gas stabilizer to ensure it is safe.

Bottom Line

Preparing for winter is quite straightforward and simple if you know what to do. These simple steps will help you reduce your heating bill during the season and avoid expensive repairs to your home after winter.

Energy-Saving Tips for Fall and Winter

Energy-Saving Tips for Fall and Winter

November 2020 by Heartland Roofing Siding and Windows

Winterize Your Home-2

As you plan to keep warm during the cool fall and cold winter months, you can save on energy costs by taking simple measures for your home. Try to keep the house warm while locking the cold outside. The tips shared in this article can be used daily as they are simple and affordable actions you can take to keep your home warm.

The first thing you need to do is conduct an energy audit of your home if you haven’t yet. An energy audit helps you identify areas you can save the most. It will also help you determine whether you need to make bigger investments for long-term energy saving. Based on your audit and the nature of your home, you can save energy and electricity costs this fall and winter by implementing the following tips:

  1. Utilize Heat From the Sun
    The heat from the sun is free for use and allows you to save energy if you use it in the right way. During the day, open curtains on the windows facing south to allow sunlight to heat up your home in a natural way. Make sure you close them early in the evening and night when it is chilly to reduce the amount of cold entering the house.
  2. Cover Drafty Windows
    You could be losing a lot of heat through drafty windows. During the cold winter months, use clear and heavy-duty plastic sheets to cover openings in your window frames. You can also tape plastic film and seal the openings tightly to reduce infiltration. Consider installing tight-fitting and insulating shades or drapes on the windows, which feel drafty after weatherizing.
  3. Find and Seal Leaks
    Any leaks in your home are a source of energy loss. Take time to find and seal air leaks in your house, especially around utility cut-through for pipes, gains in recessed lights in the insulated ceiling, gaps around chimneys, and unfinished spaced behind closets and cupboards. You may add weather-stripping and caulk to seal air leaks if your windows and doors are leaky.
  4. Adjust the House Temperature
    The temperature in your home should be ideal for the time of the day and activities you are engaged in. If you are home and awake, try setting your thermostat as low as you can. At night when you are asleep or when you are out of the house, setting your thermostat to around 10 – 15 degrees can save you more than 10% on your heating and cooling bills. Nowadays, you can even install a programmable or smart thermostat that allows you to automatically set the temperature depending on the time of day.
  5. Reduce Heat Loss from the Fireplace
    You can take a few measures to reduce heat loss from your fireplace. When you use the fireplace, open the damper in the bottom in the bottom of the firebox. You can also open the nearest windows about 1 inch and the door leading to the room. Then lower the thermostat setting to about 50 or 550 F. When there is no fire burning, always keep the fireplace damper closed.For those who never use the fireplace, it is advisable to plug and seal the chimney flue. However, if you use the fireplace regularly, install a heat-air exchange system and tempered glass doors to ensure warm air is blown back into the room. You may also acquire C-shaped metal grates to draw cool air from the room into the fireplace while circulating warm air into the room. Other measures you may take include adding caulking around the hearth of the fireplace and ensuring the fireplace flue damper is snugly sealed.
  6. Maintain Your Heating System
    You could be using lots of energy and incurring extra costs if your heating system is inefficient. Schedule for servicing on a regular basis to ensure everything is working effectively. Replace your furnace and haring pump filters once every month or as needed. Also, clean the wood and pellet-burning heaters vents on a regular basis to ensure the home is heated properly.
  7. Lower Holiday Lighting Costs
    You can save on more energy by keeping your holiday lighting costs minimal. LED light strings provide a budget way of decorating the home for winter.
  8. Reduce the Cost of Heating Water
    Save extra electricity cost by turning down the water heater temperature to 1200 F warm setting. The setting allows you to save energy while avoiding scalding your hands.

Winterizing Your Home

Let’s get you ready for the cold with our top 8 tips for winterizing your home!

Preparing your home for winter in Central Iowa takes some planning but doesn’t have to break the bank and can save you from major stress and costly repairs down the road. With a few simple steps, your home will be ready to stand up to the cold in the coming seasons.

  1. Make Sure Your Furnace Can Get You Through the Winter
    It’s a good idea to have a professional inspect and clean your furnace to make sure it’s in tip-top shape for the blustery season ahead. Also, make sure you have enough filters to refresh them monthly throughout the winter.
  2. Seal Doors and Windows
    Inspect for cracks and seal them up with caulk or weatherstripping before it gets drafty. Now is also the time to install storm windows.
  3. Clear Gutters & Downspouts
    Debris and autumn leaves can trap frozen water in your gutters which could create problems like warping and cracking.
  4. Beef Up Your Insulation
    Make sure that your attic has adequate insulation so you don’t waste extra money and energy on heating over the winter.
  5. Check the Foundation
    Keep leaves away from the foundation and seal any cracks or entry points where mice could enter, keeping in mind the little buggers can sneak through space as thin as a dime!
  6. Plant Bulbs for a Happy Spring
    Think ahead to spring and add some color to your yard with bulbs that like to be planted in the fall, such as daffodils and tulips.
  7. Assess Landscaping
    Move sensitive potted plants indoors and check for branches that need trimming near your roof or power lines.
  8. Change Direction on Your Ceiling Fan
    Clockwise for the winter will keep the warm air from rising and keep you warm

Window Replacement During the Winter

Window Replacement During the Winter

February 2020 by Heartland Roofing Siding and Windows

Window replacement heartland roofing siding windows

As your house or business ages, parts will inevitably need to be repaired or replaced, windows included. In fact, we would argue that windows are one of the most important aspects of a building because keeping them in prime condition can extend the life of the structure and prevent unnecessary damage. Windows provide easy and affordable climate-control, trapping heat inside during those chilly winter nights and bringing in a cool breeze on hot summer days. They are easy to clean, with all smudges and dirt wiped away with a simple window cleaning solution. When they are properly installed and maintained, they can last decades, but when the time comes for a replacement, it can be quite costly.

As your house or business ages, parts will inevitably need to be repaired or replaced, windows included. In fact, we would argue that windows are one of the most important aspects of a building because keeping them in prime condition can extend the life of the structure and prevent unnecessary damage. Windows provide easy and affordable climate-control, trapping heat inside during those chilly winter nights and bringing in a cool breeze on hot summer days. They are easy to clean, with all smudges and dirt wiped away with a simple window cleaning solution. When they are properly installed and maintained, they can last decades, but when the time comes for a replacement, it can be quite costly.

But damaged or broken windows can cause a lot of problems, from energy inefficiency to security breaches. If you notice that your windows have rotted or swollen wood, foggy double-pane glass, allows rain and other elements into the building, or just don’t look as nice as they did in their prime years, it could be time for a replacement. You should also have a contractor inspect your windows after any major storm or while you are replacing other parts of your home, such as siding. Everyone deserves to have beautiful, fully .

Vinyl Window Replacement

One of the most common materials used for replacement windows is vinyl. Windows that are made from vinyl are durable, yet flexible, and are among the most successful in terms of resisting heat and water damage. Vinyl window replacement is a quick process because, since the material will not fade or crack as time passes, finishing and painting will not be necessary. If you are looking to invest in a product that can last more than 20 years and will be worth every penny you put into it, vinyl windows are for you! Luckily, Heartland Roofing Siding and Window’s offers a wide selection of vinyl windows and there is truly something for every homeowner.

If you’re like most homeowners in, you’ll choose to start your window installation project just before the weather turns too hot or too cold. While this method of thinking makes sense in terms of saving energy, many homeowners don’t consider window installation during the winter.

While it’s true that the winter season is slow for replacement window companies in, this can be used to your advantage. Here are several reasons why you should consider winter window installation in Lakewood:

  • Since the winter season is slow, you’ll likely enjoy faster window installation and turnaround times for your project. You can generally get your windows installed faster in the winter, but keep in mind that the timeframe greatly depends on your unique window installation project
  • Worried about cold weather? Window installation in the winter can feel like an inconvenience while dealing with the cold, but your window installation professionals will do everything they can to prevent heat loss
  • One of the preventative steps to avoiding heat loss includes installing one window at a time. Each window will take approximately 30 minutes to install, so you can keep doors closed in other areas of your home to trap in the heat
  • Professional window installers will also use non-latex sealant materials to keep out as much of the cold air and elements as possible

The window installation process during the winter works just the same as any other time of year.

Is Your Air Conditioner Running Too Much?

Consider Heartland Roofing Siding and Windows to help reduce your energy costs! More and more, homeowners are seeking out energy-saving building materials for their renovations and new homes, products that not only secure and improve structures but also provide long-term cost-cutting on energy bills while promoting environmental and economic sustainability in the greater community.

    Among the array of possible upgrades, “cool metal roofing” easily answers this consumer demand offering a solid, attractive roofing solution available in multiple colors, textures, and profiles, for steep-slope and low-slope applications, that can  save your household up to 40% of its annual energy costs, depending on your geographical region.

    The Benefits of Energy Efficient Metal Roofing:

    As reported by the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, installation of reflective metal roofing can save your home up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs while highly emissive metal roofs can reduce urban air temperatures by as much as 12 ° F. Combined, these benefits mean less money out of your wallet, less dependence on energy resources and less general air pollution in your neighborhood and across the nation.

    energy1
    energy2
    energy3

      The secret to metal roofing’s energy savings is in its variety of finishes. As shown above, the basic, unpainted metal roof will reflect much of the solar radiation usually absorbed in your attic and home by an asphalt roof. But, for homes in warmer climates, pre-painted or granular coated metal roofing systems not only reflect solar energy but also cool your home by re-emitting most of what solar radiation is absorbed.  Where annual cooling loads dominate, a highly reflective and highly emissive painted or granular-coated metal roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption and can actually re-emit up to 90% of absorbed solar radiation.

      Conclusion

      It may seem like there is a lot to think about when it comes to replacing your roof, but it will be worth it in the long run. Schedule a consultation just like you would any other important maintenance task (like changing the oil in your car). It will end up saving you time and money in the future.

      When is The Best Time of Year to Replace Windows?

      When is The Best Time of Year to Replace Windows?

      July 2019 by Heartland Roofing Siding and Windows

      window replacements

      A window replacement isn’t a massive home improvement job, but it does require planning and preparation. One necessary step is choosing when you want to do your window replacement, specifically what season.

        Step One: Consultation

        The first step before picking a time of year for your replacement window installation is choosing a contractor and having an in-home consultation. We will look at your home and your windows to have a better idea of how long the project will take so you can plan accordingly.

        Which Season is Best?

        There are pros and cons to doing a window replacement in any season, and the necessary steps and process for the installation vary in warm versus hot temperatures. Installations can really happen year-round, weather permitting, so often it is a question of preference.

        -Spring or Summer: Replacing your windows in spring or a mild summer has several benefits. First, if you’re replacing lots of windows at once, warm weather will help keep your home at a nice temperature during the work. Take care, though, because if the weather gets too hot, all the excess heat might make your home uncomfortable. Second, most people have easier schedules in the summer as kids are out of school and businesses to allow for more vacation time. This might make it easier to plan around.

        -Winter or Fall: While at first glance installing windows in the colder months might seem like a bad idea, there are some advantages. While having your home open to the cold air isn’t ideal, you can easily isolate the drafts by shutting doors or putting up curtains. Again, there is also the risk of snowstorms, severe cold or other bad weather delaying the project, but that’s also a risk during the spring and summer too.

        It’s Up to You

        So, what time of the year is the best to replace windows? It’s up to you! It mostly depends on preference. Do you prefer extra heat or extra cold in your home during the installation? Is scheduling or saving money more important?

        With the right planning, window replacements can be done any time of the year, so ultimately the decision is all about what’s most convenient for you.

        Conclusion

        It may seem like there is a lot to think about when it comes to replacing windows, but it will be worth it in the long run.
        Schedule a window replacement consultation just like you would any other important maintenance task (like changing the oil in your car). It will end up saving you time and money in the future.
