As the cool temperatures move in, you’re trying everything you can to make sure your Waukegan home retains the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, upgraded 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.
Robinson Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a completely bare window. Invest in some thermal curtains this season to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help prevent water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that adorable chevron number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
