Winter Warming Tips for Your Indianapolis, IN Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Indianapolis, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cold 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 leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts far 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 could be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling costs.

  • Utilize heavy drapes. Using thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair these with blinds and shades for an even better warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can provide you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a variety of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Indianapolis is critical when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
