Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Westerly, Rhode Island 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 dead of winter hits Westerly, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they could be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home slips 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 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 a bit of extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling expenses.

  • Use heavyweight drapes. Taking advantage of thicker 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 offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are a number of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

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