As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re trying to do everything you know of to make sure your London home traps 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 decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.
Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare is here with a couple more easy and affordable tips to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help keep a little more warmth inside your home. It’s simple to lose warmth to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this season to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at least would help to make that path across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that adorable chevron rug you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be confident your heating equipment is up to the task of keeping your family warm all winter long. Be absolutely sure with a heating tune-up from Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare. Roy Inch & Sons now provides fall discounts on heating tune-ups.
