As the winter temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you know of to make sure your Livermore home retains the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re away.
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help avoid water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
