As the cold temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you think of to make sure your Columbia home retains the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.
Midland Air Service Experts is here with a few more easy and affordable recommendations to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with no covering. Get some thermal curtains this year to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on your floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that adorable chevron number you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
