As the cool temperatures return, you’re doing everything you think of to make sure your Edmonton home keeps the warm air brought in by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re gone.
McKinley Heating Service Experts is here with some more easy and affordable tips to help keep your home warm and cozy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with no covering. Buy some thermal curtains this season to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on bare floors could help keep your home 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 number you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.

Most important of all is to be confident your heating system is up to the task of keeping your home warm all season long.
