As the winter temperatures return, you’re trying everything you think of to make sure your Albany home retains the warm air blown out by your heating equipment. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.
D.A. Bennett Service Experts is here with some more easy and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help prevent water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be certain your heating system is up to the mission of keeping you warm all cold-weather long. Be 100% sure with a furnace tune-up from D.A. Bennett Service Experts. D.A. Bennett now provides fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 518-205-3324 to make sure you and your home are warm and cozy throughout the season.
