As the cool temperatures return, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Dayton home retains the warm air blown out by your furnace. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.
Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose warmth to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Invest in some thermal curtains this year to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help prevent water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that cute chevron number you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most important of all is to be sure your furnace is up to the job of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be absolutely sure with a heating tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts. Stevenson Service Experts now provides fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 937-503-7896 to make sure you and your home are warm and toasty throughout the season.
