Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Colorado Springs, CO Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Colorado Springs, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they may be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home leaks 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 usually 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 courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling costs.

  • Use thick drapes. Utilizing thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add 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 opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Colorado Springs is essential when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
