Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Winston-Salem, North Carolina Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

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

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

  • 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 normally works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that constrain you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Utilize heavyweight drapes. Using thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add another 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 almost forgotten, but can provide you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

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