Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Woburn, MA 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 Woburn, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they could 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 during the day, make certain that 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 constrain you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling bills.

  • Utilize thick 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. Add 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 far away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a variety of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Woburn is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
