Winter Warming Tips for Your Santa Fe, New Mexico 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 Santa Fe, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they may be costing you money every 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 at bay:

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

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to swap them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling bills.

  • Use heavyweight 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. Couple these with blinds and shades for an even better warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is nearly forgotten, but can give you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are a number of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Santa Fe is essential when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
