As the cold temperatures move in, you’re trying to do everything you can to make sure your Waldorf home traps the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re away.
A-Plus is here with some more easy and affordable tips to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains – $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warmth inside your home. It’s easy to lose warmth to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a completely bare window. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames – $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors – $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at least would help to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that pretty chevron number you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.

Most critical of all is to be sure your heating system is up to the task of keeping your home warm all cold-weather long. Be 100% sure with a furnace tune-up from A-Plus.
