Winter Warming Tips for Your Boise, ID 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 Boise, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly 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 leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a handful of tips to help keep those drafts far away:

  • 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 normally 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 out 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 increase your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling bills.

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

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

Keeping a comfortable home in Boise is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
