Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Cape Cod, Massachusetts Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Cape Cod, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they can be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through 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 a little extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding 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 decrease heating and cooling costs.

  • Use thick drapes. Using thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades for an even greater 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 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 incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Cape Cod is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not use your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
