Winter Warming Tips for Your Albuquerque, New Mexico Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Albuquerque, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they may 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 few 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 normally works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help lower heating and cooling expenses.

  • Utilize heavyweight drapes. Taking advantage of thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add these with blinds and shades for an even greater 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 at bay. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Albuquerque is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
