Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Greensboro, North Carolina Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Greensboro, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with chilly temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during 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 constrain you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing 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 decrease heating and cooling bills.

  • Utilize heavyweight drapes. Using heavyweight 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 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 integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Greensboro is critical when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
