Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Salt Lake City, UT Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Salt Lake City, 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 leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts far 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 normally works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that limit you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can provide you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Salt Lake City is crucial when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
