As the winter temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Long Island home traps the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to save energy while you’re away.
Matz-Rightway is here with a couple more painless and affordable tips to help keep you warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with nothing. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help prevent water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on your floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that cute chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
