Winter Warming Tips for Your Fall River, 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 cold hits Fall River, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they can be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home goes 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, make sure 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 restrict you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying 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 lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Utilizing thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add another 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 nearly forgotten, but can offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Fall River is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
