As the seasons change and the weather turns, it’s essential to consider how to keep your home comfortable even in the coldest temperatures. With a few simple steps, you can not only keep the existing heat within your home, but you can also increase the warmth in your home naturally.
Use Your Drapery
Curtains can make a huge difference in preserving existing heat in your home and help block out cold air from the windows and doors. The key is to open the curtains when natural sunlight shines through the windows during the day, which will heat your home. Closing the curtains as the sun sets will keep that heat in and help your home feel warmer.
If you want to conserve heat, consider throwing on an extra layer before turning up the heat. Sometimes it can be as simple as a thick pair of socks or a warm sweater to help you feel comfortable with your home’s average temperature. Not only will this simple trick save you from overheating your home, but the results will also be cozy.
Rugs make a huge difference in how our home feels, whether in your living room or bedroom. A plush carpet gives the room a sense of comfort and helps keep your feet warm, which in turn keeps your overall body temperature comfortable.
Clean Your Filter
Lastly, if you have a filter in your heating system, this is an excellent time to check it out and clean it if necessary. This simple check can impact your home’s heating and prevent your heater from working at total capacity. If you are unsure about filter replacement or maintenance, contact a pro in your area for expert advice.
