As the cold temperatures arrive, 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 invested in a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re gone.
Neal Harris Service Experts is here with some more painless and affordable tips to help keep your home warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help keep a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this year to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help ward off water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that adorable chevron number you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
