As the cool temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Indianapolis home retains the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.
Broad Ripple Service Experts is here with a few more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at least would help to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up – $
Most important of all is to be sure your heating system is up to the mission of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be absolutely sure with a furnace tune-up from Broad Ripple Service Experts.
