Winter Warming Tips for Your St. Paul, MN Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits St. Paul, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cold temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, make sure you have your curtains open to let in natural light and warmth. It typically works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling costs.

  • 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 better warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is almost forgotten, but can offer you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are places 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 comfy home in St. Paul is essential when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
