Winter Warming Tips for Your Portsmouth, NH Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Portsmouth, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they can be costing you money each 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 at bay:

  • 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 normally 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 courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling expenses.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Utilizing thicker 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 almost forgotten, but can provide 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 constantly, there are a number of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Portsmouth is crucial when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
