Winter Warming Tips for Your Ketchum, ID Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Ketchum, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cold temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make sure 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 limit you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it may be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling costs.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Taking advantage of heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add a second 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 offer 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 plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Ketchum is crucial when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
