As the cold temperatures return, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Roanoke home traps the warm air brought in by your heating equipment. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re gone.
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple more simple and affordable tips to help keep you warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s simple to lose warm air to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this season to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help prevent water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on bare floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that adorable chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
