Winter Warming Tips for Your Eau Claire, Wisconsin Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows
You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Eau Claire, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cooler temps?
Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they could be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts at bay:
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 typically 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 boost your comfort and help lower
heating and cooling costs.
- Use thick drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to
add another 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 nearly forgotten, but can give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home.
Keeping a cozy home in Eau Claire is critical when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
