How To Keep Your Home Warm For Less This Winter

Winter is upon us, which means if you are not prepared, your home may see a rise in heating expenses over the next few months. However, you don’t need high utility bills to stay warm and cozy this winter. We have rounded up a few tips that will help keep your home warm this winter without having to spend a fortune!

1. Hang Heavy, Durable Window Curtains

Thin sheers that you may have hanging up during the summer months aren’t going to do any good during the winter. It’s time to switch out those thin sheers for heavy drapes. Drapes will help keep the warm air in and that chilly breeze out. Make sure you open them during the day, as well, so you can let natural light warm up your home!

2. Consider Using a Smart Thermostat

The right thermostat can make a HUGE difference in your home this winter. A smart thermostat learns your family's habits and allows you to adjust the temperature in your home depending on your schedule. That way you are not heating an unoccupied home, which will help save money.

3. Use Throw Rugs in Rooms With Hard-Surface Floors

Throw rugs aren’t only for looks! They can also help insulate your home during those chilly months of the year. How? Well, when you place rugs down on wood floors, it helps reduce any drafts between the floorboards!

4. Change The Direction Of Your Ceiling Fan

Most people forget about this super easy and quick tip! During the winter, reverse your fan’s rotation to push cool air upward and mix with the rising heat. The mixed air will then spread downward, warming the room.

5. Make Sure Your Furniture Isn’t Covering Ventilation Ducts

Double-check that your furniture is not blocking any of your vents. Furniture that covers an HVAC register is preventing your home from getting a proper flow of heat. This is especially important if you have baseboard heating, which can lead to a fire if blocked.
