Winter Warming Tips for Your Victoria, 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 Victoria, so what else can you do to keep your home comfortable with cold temps?
Drafty replacement windows and doors not only inhibit your comfort, they may be costing you money every as the heated air inside your home leaks outdoors and the cold outside air makes its way indoors. Here are a few tips to help keep those drafts at bay:
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 normally works best with
south-facing windows, but don’t let that constrain you
when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and
warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.
- Consider adding
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 bills.
- Utilize heavyweight drapes. Using heavyweight fabrics for drapes helps to
add an additional barrier for your home, helping to keep
drafts out and warm air in. Couple 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 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 number of stylish ways to incorporate these drapes in to your home.
