As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re trying to do everything you know of to make sure your Grand Island home keeps the warm air produced by your furnace. 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 is here with a few more easy and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help trap a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose warm air to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this year to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help avoid water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most important of all is to be sure your heating equipment is up to the job of keeping your family warm all season long. Be 100% sure with a heating tune-up from McElroy Service Experts.
