Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Falls Church, VA Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Falls Church, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cooler temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, make certain that 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 limit you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding 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 expenses.

  • 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. Pair these with blinds and shades for an even bigger warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Falls Church is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
