Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Southern Pines, NC 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 dead of winter hits Southern Pines, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they could be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a couple tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

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

  • Consider buying 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 decrease heating and cooling bills.

  • Use heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional 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 almost forgotten, but can give you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are plenty of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Southern Pines is crucial when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
