Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Syracuse, NY 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 Syracuse, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cooler temps?

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

  • 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 typically works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that constrain 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 replace them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of thick drapes. Using heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add another 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 almost forgotten, but can give you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a number of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Syracuse is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
