Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Hanover, MA 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 Hanover, 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 could be costing you money every 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 at bay:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during the day, make certain that you have your curtains open to let in natural light and warmth. It typically 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 from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it may be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Taking advantage of thicker 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 better warming effect.

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