The usual reasons for browning of the tips of palm leaves are dry air, underwatering, cold air, or excessive minerals in the water. Try misting the leaves to increase humidity around the plant, keeping the soil moist, and keeping the plant out of drafts. You may want to use bottled rather than tap water if you know your water is very hard.
