Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Providence, Massachusetts 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 Providence, 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 could 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 handful of tips to help keep those drafts far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during the day, make certain that 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 courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Use thick drapes. Using heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional 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 offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a variety of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Providence is crucial when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not use your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
