As the cool temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Hillsborough home traps the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, improved 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 is here with some more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warmth inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help ward off water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that beautiful chevron number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be confident your heating system is up to the task of keeping your home warm all cold-weather long.
