Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Gaithersburg, MD Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Gaithersburg, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they could be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

  • 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 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 from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Taking advantage of thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add 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 offer you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Gaithersburg is crucial when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
