As the winter temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Livermore home keeps the warm air produced 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 lower the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re gone.
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some more painless and affordable tips to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with nothing. Get some thermal curtains this fall to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
