As the cold temperatures move in, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Birmingham home keeps the warm air brought in by your heating equipment. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.
Norrell Service Experts is here with some more painless and affordable ideas to help keep you warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warmth to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with no covering. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on bare floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that pretty chevron piece you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be confident your furnace is up to the mission of keeping you warm all season long. Be completely sure with a heating tune-up from Norrell Service Experts.
