As the winter temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you know of to make sure your Pierre home retains the warm air brought in 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 avoid wasting energy while you’re out of the home.
Peitz Service Experts is here with some more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this year to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
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 path across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that beautiful chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
