Winter Warming Tips for Your Shrewsbury, MA Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Shrewsbury, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cooler 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 slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

  • 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 usually works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that constrain you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add a second 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 almost forgotten, but can give you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are rooms 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 comfortable home in Shrewsbury is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
