As the cool temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Albany 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 reduce the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.
Roland J. Down Service Experts is here with a few more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help keep a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help prevent water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at least would help 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 guilt-free.
