This weekend Louisville was cold and it looks like more cold is still to come!
During the cold winter months, many people struggle with finding the perfect balance between keeping themselves warm and spending too much money on energy bills. Blasting the heat during the winter will definitely keep you and your family warm, but unfortunately, you’ll have to pay for it when your heating bill shows up for the month. We’re here with a list of ways to keep your home warm in the winter, while keeping your wallet happy.
- Small changes in your home decor can help to keep your home warmer in the winter. Using rugs on hardwood or tile floors is a great way to make a room feel warmer. You can also warm up a room by installing thermal curtains, or thicker curtains around your windows. This decor change can help deter the draft that is common around window seals.
- Another way to decrease your chances of having cold air enter your home through your windows is to caulk your window frames. Doing this will also prevent water damage and improve indoor air quality.
- Once you have done all of the potential DIY ways to keep your home warm, it may be a good idea to call a heating professional to have a tune-up on your furnace. This will ensure that your unit is running in the most efficient and cost effective way during the winter season.
