Published on

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

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they could be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make certain that you have your curtains open to let in natural light and warmth. It normally 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 purchasing replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add another 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 offer 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 at all times, there are a variety of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home.
