Top Five Recommendations for Keeping Your Home Warm

  1. Check Your Windows: The first thing you need to do is start up high, and what I mean is, let’s start with the windows and window curtains. Make sure that your windows don’t let the heat out. Also, it’s time to take down those thin curtains and buy thick ones to keep the cold out and the heat in. You will be so surprised at how much heat you will be able to keep in your home while keeping out the cold.

  2. Insulate Your Feet: When people have hardwood floors and no carpeting their floors are freezing! So you can either buy a couple of area rugs, or the cheaper option would be to always have socks and slippers for the whole family. Make it fun with fuzzy socks or outrageous animal slippers! Also, runners on the bottom of doors are a great way to keep the cold weather out.

  3. Have A Programmable Thermostat: Make sure you have your home on a timer or a programmable thermostat for when you’re not home. No need to heat up the house if you’re not there. Check out the Honeywell line of thermostats.

  4. Bundle Up: Wearing long sleeve and pant pajamas are a sure-fire way to keep warm at night. Turn down the thermostat at night and cuddle up with a nice pair of flannel pajamas!

  5. Have Your Heating System Serviced: Always have an HVAC contractor come to perform regular maintenance checks on your furnace. It’s always hard to tell a customer it’s going to be a day or two in the middle of winter when everyone is booked when their furnace has broken down and they have no heat. In most cases, you can avoid that situation with annual maintenance each fall.
