Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Edmonton, AB 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 dead of winter hits Edmonton, so what else can you do to keep your home comfy with cooler temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they may be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home goes outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way inside. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining during 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 constrain you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Take advantage of thick 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 better warming effect.

  • Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is almost forgotten, but can offer you the chance to keep drafts from rooms or different floors away. If there are areas 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 comfy home in Edmonton is critical when winter weather can be unpredictable, so why not use your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
