Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cool temperatures return, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Austin home retains the warm air blown out by your furnace. You’ve added sealant around doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in 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 some more painless and affordable tips 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 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 yourself 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 winter, 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 hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that adorable chevron piece you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
