As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Saint Charles home keeps 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 lower the temperature to save energy while you’re gone.
Golden Seal Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable tips to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help keep a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a completely bare window. Buy some thermal curtains this year to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help ward off water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at least would help to make that walk across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that pretty chevron rug 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 sure your furnace is up to the mission of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be absolutely sure with a heating tune-up from Golden Seal Service Experts.
