Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Hillsborough home traps the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re out of the home.

Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Adding thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help retain a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this season to help keep yourself warm all winter.

Caulk Window Frames - $

The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help ward off water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that cute chevron number you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
