As the cold temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Houston home retains the warm air brought in 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 lower the temperature to conserve energy while you’re away.
Church Services is here with a couple more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help keep a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose warm air to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a completely bare window. Invest in some thermal curtains this year to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help prevent water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that walk 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 heating system is up to the job of keeping your home warm all season long. Be absolutely sure with a furnace tune-up from Church Services. Church Services now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 713-396-3760 to be confident you and your loved ones are warm and cozy throughout the season.
