Winter Warming Tips for Your El Paso, Texas Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

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

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they can be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a handful of tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, be 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 constrain you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth from 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 boost your comfort and help lower heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of thick drapes. Taking advantage of heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair 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 give you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are rooms 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 cozy home in El Paso is critical when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
