Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your San Antonio, TX Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits San Antonio, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your 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 couple tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, make certain that 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 restrict you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling expenses.

  • Take advantage of thick drapes. Using heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is nearly forgotten, but can give you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are a variety of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in San Antonio is critical when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
