Winter Warming Tips for Your Bloomington, IN, IN Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows
You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Bloomington, IN, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold temps?
Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they may be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts away:
the sun. When the sun is shining during the day, make
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 restrict 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 swap them out with new energy efficient windows
to increase your comfort and help reduce
heating and cooling expenses.
advantage of heavyweight drapes. Using heavier fabrics for drapes helps to
add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep
drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades
for an even better warming effect.
- Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is almost forgotten, but can provide you the chance 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 a number of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home.
