As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Louisville home traps the warm air blown out by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around 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 gone.
Becht/Givens Service Experts is here with a few more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help keep a little more heat inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warm air to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with no covering. Buy some thermal curtains this year to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on your floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at least would help to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that beautiful chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
