Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Mt. Pleasant, MI Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Mt. Pleasant, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they can be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make sure 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 constrain you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help lower heating and cooling expenses.

  • Utilize heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair 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 give you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Mt. Pleasant is critical when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
