Winter Warming Tips for Your Kelowna, B.C. Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows
You’ve already taken care of the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the before the really bad weather hits Kelowna, 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 may 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:
the sun. When the sun is shining during the day, make
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 a little 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 replace them out with new energy efficient windows
to improve your comfort and help lower
heating and cooling expenses.
- Utilize thick drapes. Taking
advantage of 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 better warming effect.
- Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are a variety of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home.
