Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Grand Island home retains the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, improved 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.

McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some more easy and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Hanging thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more warmth inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warm air 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 year to help keep your home warm all winter.

Caulk Window Frames - $

The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.

Heating Tune-Up - $

Most crucial of all is to be confident your heating equipment is up to the task of keeping your family warm all season long. Be absolutely sure with a Precision tune-up from McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
