As the cool temperatures return, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Kitchener home retains the warm air brought in by your heating equipment. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to conserve energy while you’re out of the home.
Boehmers/Cronin Emery Home Services by Enercare is here with a few more easy and affordable tips to help keep your family warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more warmth inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help avoid water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on your floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that beautiful chevron number you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
