If you’re going to be spending a lot of time at home during the cold season, shouldn’t you be able to stay warm and cozy without spending excessive amounts of money on heating bills? We think the answer is yes, and the good news is, with these helpful tips you can stay comfortable all winter, and you can do it without breaking the bank or burning out your furnace.
1. Purchase a Humidifier
One reason your home might feel especially cold at times is that the air is more dry than usual. Air without enough moisture has trouble transferring heat around. However, with a humidifier, you can add moisture to your home’s air, which will immediately make your house feel warmer. This allows you to turn down the thermostat and save some money on energy.
2. Close the Curtains
Did you know that your curtains can effectively keep warmth trapped inside your home? Your windows and glass doors can be a major source of heat escaping, but if you close the curtains at night you can prevent that. As a result, you can turn down the furnace without getting any colder. However, in the afternoon when the sun is out, open up those curtains to let the natural warmth enter the house.
3. Clean Out Your Vents
Your heating system relies on vents to effectively circulate warm air through the house. However, if the vents get dirty or clogged, it can make it much harder for your furnace to heat your home. Once a month, remove the protective covers from your home’s vents and use a vacuum hose to clean out the dust, dirt, and loose debris.
