Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Monroe, CT Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

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

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make sure you have your curtains open to let in natural light and warmth. It usually works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that limit you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling costs.

  • Use heavy drapes. Utilizing thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add these with blinds and shades for an even bigger warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is almost forgotten, but can provide you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Monroe is critical when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
