Winter Warming Tips for Your Norwalk, CT 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 Norwalk, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased 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 in. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through 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 a little extra natural light and warmth out 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 expenses.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Taking advantage of thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades for an even better warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is almost forgotten, but can give 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 at all times, there are plenty of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

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