Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Asheville, NC Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Asheville, 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 may 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 far 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 usually works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you when it comes to adding a bit of extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Use thick drapes. Utilizing 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 nearly forgotten, but can provide you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. 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 comfortable home in Asheville is essential when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
