Winter Warming Tips for Your Boone, NC 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 Boone, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with cold temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your 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 few tips to help keep those drafts 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 normally works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider purchasing 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.

  • Use 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. Add these with blinds and shades for an even bigger warming effect.

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

Keeping a cozy home in Boone is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
