Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cool temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you think of to make sure your Niagara Falls home traps the warm air brought in by your furnace. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.

Niagara Home Services by Enercare is here with some more easy and affordable tips to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Adding thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help trap a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Invest in 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 feasible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on your floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at least would help to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that cute chevron number you’ve had your eye on at can now be yours guilt-free.

Heating Tune-Up - $

Most crucial of all is to be certain your furnace is up to the job of keeping you warm all season long. Be absolutely sure with a Precision tune-up from Niagara Home Services by Enercare.
