Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cold temperatures return, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Waldorf home retains the warm air brought in by your furnace. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re gone.

A-PLUS Service Experts is here with a few more painless and affordable recommendations to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s simple to lose warm air to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with nothing. Buy some thermal curtains this season to help keep yourself warm all winter.

Caulk Window Frames - $

The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that path across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.

Heating Tune-Up - $

Most crucial of all is to be sure your furnace is up to the mission of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be 100% sure with a heating tune-up from A-PLUS Service Experts. A-PLUS now offers fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 301-747-3140 to make sure you and your family are warm and cozy throughout the whole year.
