As the cool temperatures arrive, you’re trying everything you can to make sure your Kingston home keeps the warm air brought in by your heating equipment. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re away.
Service Experts Home Services by Enercare is here with some more simple and affordable tips to help keep you warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warm air to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Invest in some thermal curtains this year to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help ward off water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on hard floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at least would help to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that cute chevron number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
