Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Tucson, AZ Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Tucson, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they could 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 couple 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 typically 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 might be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help lower heating and cooling expenses.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Utilizing heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is nearly forgotten, but can offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Tucson is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
