Staying warm this season doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Use these tips from the experts at Air Treatment Company to make your home feel warmer without touching your thermostat…
When the weather gets cold, dress for the occasion. Putting on your coziest sweater won’t cost you a dime, but it is guaranteed to keep you warm.
We all know that high humidity can make a warm summer day feel ten degrees hotter, so why not use this same logic in your home? Investing in a humidifier can make your home feel warmer, and prevent your skin, nose, and throat from drying out.
Use the Sun
The sun is the world’s biggest source of heat, and best of all – it’s totally free. Open your curtains during the daytime to let the sun naturally warm up your house, especially on the south-facing windows. Just make sure to close the curtains at night to minimize heat loss.
Switch Your Ceiling Fans
Most of us use fans to keep cool, but did you know they can also warm you up? Setting your ceiling fan blades to rotate clockwise will push warm air that has gathered at the ceiling back down into the room.
If you have drafty spots in your home, your money could be going right out the window – literally. Use caulk, weatherstripping, or a draft stop to plug air leaks around the home. This will help keep you warm and could save you up to 15% or more on your energy bills.
