Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Beltsville, Maryland 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 Beltsville, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they could be costing you money month after 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 far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make certain that 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 a little extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • 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 give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are a variety of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

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