Winter Warming Tips for Your Muncie, IN 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 Muncie, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they could be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a handful of tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome 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 normally 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 from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying 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 reduce heating and cooling expenses.

  • Utilize thick drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

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

Keeping a comfortable home in Muncie is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
