Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Roanoke, Virginia Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

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

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they could be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a couple 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 usually works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that limit you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider adding replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it might be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows to increase your comfort and help decrease heating and cooling costs.

  • Utilize heavy drapes. Utilizing heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Pair these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is nearly forgotten, but can give you the ability 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 plenty of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Roanoke is crucial when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
