Winter Warming Tips for Your Binghamton, NY 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 Binghamton, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they can be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. 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 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 out of 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 improve your comfort and help lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Use heavyweight drapes. Taking advantage of thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple 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 opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a number of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Binghamton is essential when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
