Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

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

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they may be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a few 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 some extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Use heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavyweight 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 give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a variety of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Denver is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
