As the cool temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Rochester home keeps the warm air blown out by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re gone.
Strogen's Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s easy to lose warm air to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at least would help to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up – $
Most crucial of all is to be certain your heating system is up to the task of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be completely sure with a Precision tune-up from Strogen's Service Experts. Strogen's Service Experts now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 603-923-4570 to make sure you and your family are warm and cozy throughout the season.
