As the cool temperatures return, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Oklahoma City home retains the warm air blown out by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your 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 away.
Gordon's Service Experts is here with some more simple and affordable ideas to help keep you warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warmth to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with nothing. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help prevent water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at least would help to make that path across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that cute chevron piece you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
