As the winter temperatures move in, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Champaign home traps the warm air blown out by your furnace. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to conserve energy while you’re out of the home.
Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some more easy and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose warmth to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with no covering. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
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 cold temperatures, and at least would help to make that path across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be sure your heating equipment is up to the mission of keeping you warm all winter long.
