Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Nashville, TN Home – Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

Published on

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the cold hits Nashville, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors are not only comfort-inhibitors, they can 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 couple tips to help keep those drafts away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining throughout the day, make certain that 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 from your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Take advantage of heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to add another barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add these with blinds and shades for an even greater warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat 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 at all times, there are plenty of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfy home in Nashville is essential when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not use your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
