As the cool temperatures return, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Elkhart home traps the warm air brought in by your heating equipment. You’ve added sealant around 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 gone.
BW/Cook Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable tips to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this season to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on bare floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
