Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Greenfield, 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 cold hits Greenfield, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they may be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make sure 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 restrict you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Utilize thick drapes. Using thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can provide 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 at all times, there are a number of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Greenfield is essential when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
