Winter Warming Tips for Your Hingham, MA Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Hingham, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they can be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. Here are a handful of 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 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 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 heavy drapes. Using 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 offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are areas 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.
