Winter Warming Tips for Your Fargo, North Dakota Home Drapes, Sun and Replacement Windows

You’ve already worked on the caulking and weatherstripping around your replacement windows and doors before the dead of winter hits Fargo, so what else can you do to keep your home cozy with chilly 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 handful of tips to help keep those drafts far away:

  • Welcome the sun. When the sun is shining through the day, be sure 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 limit you when it comes to adding some extra natural light and warmth courtesy of your home’s other replacement windows.

  • Consider buying replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it may be time to switch them out with new energy efficient windows to improve your comfort and help reduce heating and cooling bills.

  • Take advantage of thick drapes. Taking advantage of thicker fabrics for drapes helps to add a second barrier for your home, helping to keep drafts out and warm air in. Add 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 offer you the opportunity to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are areas in your home that don’t need to be heated at all times, there are a variety of stylish ways to integrate these drapes in to your home. 

Keeping a comfortable home in Fargo is essential when winter weather can be difficult to predict, so why not take advantage of your replacement windows to help neutralize that challenge.
