As the winter temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Hillsborough home retains 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 installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.
Fras-Air/General Service Experts is here with a few more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help keep a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on bare floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up – $
Most important of all is to be confident your heating system is up to the job of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be completely sure with a Precision tune-up from Fras-Air/General Service Experts. Fras-Air/General Service Experts now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups.
