As the cold temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Austin home retains the warm air blown out by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, improved 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.
Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with a few more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s simple to lose warmth to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a completely bare window. Invest in some thermal curtains this season to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on your floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that adorable chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most crucial of all is to be confident your furnace is up to the task of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be 100% sure with a Precision tune-up from Strand Brothers Service Experts.
