Winter Warming Tips for Your Owensboro, KY 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 Owensboro, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they could be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home goes 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 during 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 restrict you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth courtesy of 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 decrease heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Utilizing thicker 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 greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can offer you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. 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 incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Owensboro is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
