Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

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

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they can be costing you money each as the heated air inside your home slips outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts at bay:

  • 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 usually 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 from your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding 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 costs.

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Taking advantage of thicker 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 better warming effect.

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

Keeping a cozy home in Wilmington is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
