Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Sunset Hills, MO Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Sunset Hills, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they could be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a handful of tips to help keep those drafts far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during the day, be sure you have your curtains open to let in natural light and warmth. It normally works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it may be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Utilize thick drapes. Utilizing heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are a variety of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Sunset Hills is critical when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
