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:

  • Welcome 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.

  • Take 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. 

Keeping a comfy home in West Springfield is essential when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
