Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Lewes, DE 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 Lewes, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with chilly temps?

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

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, be sure you have your curtains open to let in natural light and warmth. It typically works best with south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying 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 lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Use heavy drapes. Using heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Couple 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 offer 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 plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Lewes is essential when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
