As the winter temperatures return, you’re trying everything you can to make sure your Rochester home traps the warm air produced by your heating equipment. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re gone.
Strogen's Service Experts is here with a few more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep you warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help keep a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with no covering. Buy some thermal curtains this year to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on your 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 less miserable. So that pretty chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be certain your heating equipment is up to the mission of keeping your home warm all season long. Be completely sure with a furnace tune-up from Strogen's Service Experts. Strogen's now provides fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 603-923-4570 to make sure you and your loved ones are warm and cozy throughout the winter.
