As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Oakville home traps the warm air produced by your furnace. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.
Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare is here with some more easy and affordable recommendations to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Get some thermal curtains this season to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on hard floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that adorable chevron number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most important of all is to be certain your furnace is up to the task of keeping your family warm all winter long. Be absolutely sure with a furnace tune-up from Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare. Abbey Air now provides fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 289-813-5566 to make sure you and your loved ones are warm and comfortable throughout the winter.
