As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Central home traps the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re away.
Rolf Griffin Service Experts is here with a few more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help keep a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on hard floors could help with your home staying 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 number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up – $
Most important of all is to be sure your heating system is up to the task of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be completely sure with a Precision tune-up from Rolf Griffin Service Experts. Rolf Griffin Service Experts now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 260-557-1275 to make sure you and your family are warm and cozy throughout the season.
