Winter Warming Tips for Your Home

Winter Warming Tips for Your Memphis, Tennessee 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 Memphis, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only mean decreased comfort, they may 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 far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through 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 a bit of extra natural light and warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

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

  • Use heavyweight drapes. Utilizing heavier fabrics for drapes helps to add another 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 provide you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors far away. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a number of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Memphis is essential when winter weather can be hard to predict, so why not utilize your replacement windows to help take on that challenge.
