As the cold temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you can 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, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to conserve energy while you’re away.
Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help trap a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Get some thermal curtains this year to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay 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 guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most important of all is to be sure your furnace is up to the task of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be 100% sure with a Precision tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts.
