As the cold temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you think of to make sure your Hurricane home traps the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.
Teays Valley Service Experts is here with a couple more easy and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this year to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on your floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that cute chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
