As the cold temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Gaithersburg home traps 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 avoid wasting energy while you’re away.
Parker Pearce Service Experts is here with some more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more warm air inside your home. It’s easy to lose warm air to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a completely bare window. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on hard floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve been eyeing 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 job of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be 100% sure with a furnace tune-up from Parker Pearce Service Experts. Parker Pearce Service Experts now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 301-476-4577 to make sure you and your loved ones are warm and cozy throughout the winter.
