Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cold temperatures move in, you’re trying everything you can to make sure your Kansas City home traps the warm air produced by your heating equipment. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, added to 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 away.

Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Adding thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help keep a little more warm air inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this year to help keep your family warm all winter.

Caulk Window Frames - $

The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that adorable chevron piece you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
