As the winter temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Tempe home traps the warm air produced by your heating equipment. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re gone.
Bob Brown Service Experts is here with a couple more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a completely bare window. Buy some thermal curtains this season to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help prevent water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on your floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most critical of all is to be sure your furnace is up to the mission of keeping your home warm all season long. Be completely sure with a heating tune-up from Bob Brown Service Experts. Bob Brown now offers fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 623-243-4517 to be sure you and your home are warm and toasty throughout the winter.
