Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the winter temperatures move in, you’re doing everything you can 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 installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to conserve energy while you’re away.

Roland J. Down Service Experts is here with a couple more easy and affordable recommendations to help keep you warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Installing thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help trap a little more warm air inside your home. It’s easy to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth 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 potential cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm 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 - $$$

Do you want an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your 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 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 furnace is up to the job of keeping your family warm all winter long. Be absolutely sure with a heating tune-up from Roland J. Down Service Experts .
