Winter Warming Tips for Your Lethbridge, AB Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already handled the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Lethbridge, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with chilly temps?

Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they could be costing you money month after as the heated air inside your home leaks 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 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 limit you when it comes to adding a bit of 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 swap them out with new energy efficient windows to boost your comfort and help lower heating and cooling expenses.

  • Utilize heavy drapes. Utilizing thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add a second 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 almost forgotten, but can give you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are places in your home that don’t need to be heated all the time, there are a variety of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a cozy home in Lethbridge is crucial when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help take care of that challenge.
