Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Kansas City, KS 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 Kansas City, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they could be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. Here are a handful of tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during the day, make certain that 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 limit you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth out 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 costs.

  • Utilize thick drapes. Taking advantage of 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 almost forgotten, but can provide you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a number of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Kansas City is crucial when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
