Winter Warming Tips for Your Natick, MA Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Natick, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they could be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a handful of tips to help keep those drafts away:

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

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it may be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling costs.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Utilizing 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 somewhat forgotten, but can offer you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are rooms 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 cozy home in Natick is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
