Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cool temperatures return, you’re trying to do everything you think of to make sure your Edmonton home retains the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.

McKinley Heating Service Experts is here with some more easy and affordable ideas to help keep you warm and cozy 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 not hard to lose warmth to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with no covering. 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 potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at least would help to make that path across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that pretty chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.

Heating Tune-Up - $

Most crucial of all is to be confident your heating system is up to the task of keeping you warm all winter long. Be completely sure with a heating tune-up from McKinley Heating Service Experts. McKinley Heating Service Experts now gives fall discounts on furnace tune-ups. Call 780-800-7092 to be confident you and your family are warm and cozy throughout the season.
