As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Knoxville home retains the warm air produced by your heating equipment. You’ve added sealant around doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re away.
R & M Climate Control Service Experts is here with some more easy and affordable ideas to help keep you warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help keep a little more warmth inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with nothing. Buy some thermal curtains this season to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that adorable chevron number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be confident your furnace is up to the mission of keeping your family warm all cold-weather long. Be 100% sure with a heating tune-up from R & M Climate Control Service Experts. R & M Climate Control now gives fall discounts on heating tune-ups.
