Winter Warming Tips for Your Boston, MA Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Boston, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cooler 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 leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through 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 limit 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 switch them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help lower heating and cooling expenses.

  • Use heavyweight drapes. Taking advantage of heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair 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 give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are rooms 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. 

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