Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you think of to make sure your Austin home traps the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve sealed any cracks 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 gone.

Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with some more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warm air to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with no covering. Get some thermal curtains this year to help keep your family warm all winter.

Caulk Window Frames - $

The Department of Energy advocates 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 winter, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
