Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat
As the cool temperatures arrive, you’re trying everything you think of to make sure your the U.S. home traps the warm air produced by your furnace. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re out of the home.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few more easy and affordable tips to help keep your home warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose warm air to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with nothing. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on hard floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at least would help to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that adorable chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
