Winter Warming Tips for Your Terre Haute, IN Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

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

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they may be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. Here are a handful of 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 usually works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that limit you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Using heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades for an even bigger warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is nearly forgotten, but can offer you the chance 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 plenty of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Terre Haute is essential when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
