Winter Warming Tips for Your Murray, Kentucky Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Murray, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly 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 goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

  • 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 normally works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you when it comes to adding some 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 swap them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling expenses.

  • Utilize thick drapes. Using heavyweight 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 greater warming effect.

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

Keeping a comfy home in Murray is critical when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
