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

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Raleigh, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cooler temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, make 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 some extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of heavy drapes. Using heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add a second 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 somewhat forgotten, but can offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are rooms 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 comfortable home in Raleigh is critical when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
