Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Evansville, IN Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Evansville, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cooler temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout 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 limit you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Utilize thick drapes. Using heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add a second 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 offer you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are a number of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Evansville is essential when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
