Winter Warming Tips for Your Cheyenne, Wyoming Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows
You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Cheyenne, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable 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 leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts far away:
the sun. When the sun is shining throughout 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 restrict you
when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and
warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.
- Consider purchasing
replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it may
be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows
to increase your comfort and help decrease
heating and cooling costs.
advantage of heavyweight drapes. Using heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to
add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep
drafts out and warm air in. Add 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 provide 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.
