Winter Warming Tips for Your Bloomington, IL Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Bloomington, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable 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 leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during 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 constrain 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 may be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help lower heating and cooling bills.

  • Utilize heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add 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 provide you the chance 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 integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Bloomington is essential when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
