Winter Warming Tips for Your Lafayette, IN 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 Lafayette, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold 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 in. Here are a handful of tips to help keep those drafts far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, be sure you have your curtains open to let in natural light and warmth. It typically works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that limit you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add a second 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 almost forgotten, but can provide you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors 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 include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Lafayette is critical when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
