As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Gaithersburg home keeps the warm air produced by your furnace. You’ve added sealant around doors, added to 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.
Parker Pearce Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable tips to help keep your family warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help keep a little more warmth inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warmth to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Buy some thermal curtains this season to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help avoid water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on hard floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at minimum 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 sure 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.
