Winter Warming Tips for Your Plattsburgh, NY Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows
You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Plattsburgh, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cold temps?
Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they could be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts far away:
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 usually works best with
south-facing windows, but don’t let that limit you
when it comes to adding some extra natural light and
warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.
- Consider purchasing
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 decrease
heating and cooling expenses.
advantage of heavyweight drapes. Using heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to
add an additional 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 far away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a number of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home.
