As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re trying to do everything you know of to make sure your Albany home traps the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to conserve energy while you’re away.
Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep you warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help prevent water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most important of all is to be sure your heating system is up to the task of keeping your family warm all season long. Be absolutely sure with a Precision tune-up from Roland J.
