Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Charlotte, 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 before the really bad weather hits Charlotte, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cooler 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 leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way in. 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 limit you when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Taking advantage of heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair these with blinds and shades for an even bigger warming effect.

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

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