Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Oklahoma City, OK 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 Oklahoma City, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they can be costing you money every 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 throughout the day, make sure 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 constrain you when it comes to adding some 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 switch them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Utilize heavy drapes. Using thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades for an even bigger warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is nearly forgotten, but can provide you the chance 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 a variety of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home.
