Published on

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Danville, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during the day, be sure 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 constrain you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Utilize heavy drapes. Utilizing thicker 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 bigger warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is almost forgotten, but can offer you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home.
