As the cool temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Champaign home retains the warm air blown out by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to conserve energy while you’re away.
Chief/Bauer Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up – $
Most crucial of all is to be sure your heating system is up to the task of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be 100% sure with a furnace tune-up from Chief/Bauer Service Experts. Chief/Bauer Service Experts now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 217-689-2469 to make sure you and your loved ones are warm and cozy throughout the winter.
