Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Scottsdale, AZ Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Scottsdale, 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 can be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, be sure 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 constrain you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying 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 costs.

  • Utilize heavy drapes. Using thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple 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 chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home.
