Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Wellesley, MA Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Wellesley, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with chilly temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make certain that 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 limit you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth courtesy of 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 reduce heating and cooling costs.

  • Utilize heavyweight drapes. Using heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add a second 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 nearly forgotten, but can offer you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a variety of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Wellesley is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
