Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Annapolis, Maryland Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Annapolis, 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 each 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 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 limit you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Take advantage of 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 bigger warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can provide you the chance 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 number of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Annapolis is critical when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
