As the cold temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you know of to make sure your Houston home retains the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re away.
Church Services is here with a couple more simple and affordable tips to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help keep a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose warm air to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this year to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help avoid water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that cute chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be certain your furnace is up to the task of keeping you warm all winter long. Be absolutely sure with a furnace tune-up from Church Services. Church Services now provides fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 713-396-3760 to be confident you and your family are warm and cozy throughout the season.
