Winter Warming Tips for Your West Springfield, MA Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows
You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits West Springfield, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cooler temps?
Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they may be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts at bay:
the sun. When the sun is shining through 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 from your home’s other replacement windows.
- Consider adding
replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it may
be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows
to improve your comfort and help decrease
heating and cooling bills.
advantage of heavy drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to
add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep
drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades
for an even better warming effect.
- Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is nearly forgotten, but can give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are a variety of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home.
