Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Terre Haute, IN 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 Terre Haute, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they may be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home goes 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 during the day, make 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 constrain you when it comes to adding some 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 replace them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair 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 give you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

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