As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Gaithersburg home retains the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.
Parker Pearce Service Experts is here with a couple more easy and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help keep a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with no covering. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that adorable chevron piece you’ve had your eye on 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 your home warm all winter long. Be completely sure with a furnace tune-up from Parker Pearce Service Experts. Parker Pearce Service Experts now offers fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 301-476-4577 to be confident you and your family are warm and cozy throughout the winter.
