Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

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

Published on

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Haverhill, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they could be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a couple 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 typically 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 swap them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling expenses.

  • Use heavyweight drapes. Using heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add these with blinds and shades for an even better 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 away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Haverhill is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
