We’re going to state the obvious: it’s cold outside.
With the cold, any leaks in your home’s heat are magnified to the extreme. Maybe you’ve woken up to a brisk bedroom, noticed what seems like a 20 degree change from room to room, or maybe you’ve had to leave your parka on even inside. Whatever the reason, it’s important that you realize there are ways to keep heat inside your home.
In this blog post, we’ll look at 5 specific ways you can keep the heat inside this winter:
Sunlight: the sun is a natural heater, obviously. So, open your curtains and let that natural heat in. Seems pretty straight forward, right?
Move that comfy sofa: Maybe a little less obvious is to move that big sofa away from the furnace vent. Although it’s warm to sit on, the sofa is likely absorbing much of the heat from the vent and the rest of the house is paying for it.
Upgrade your furnace: Furnaces that are over 10 years old may not be working as well as their newer counterparts. If you think your furnace may just be “older” and you’d like an assessment, connect with our team today.
Seal your windows: Windows are the culprit for much of our home’s heat loss. So, if you’re not able to purchase new windows with better hold, see what you can do about sealing the cracks you see (or sometimes feel).
Reverse your ceiling fan: With some fans, you’re able to reverse the spin so that you can actually pull cooler air up into the warmer air. The mixed air will then fall back down throughout the room, making things feel warmer. Not the most idea option, but it can help in the right situation.
Heating your home this winter is a priority, and it’s one that we’re committed to. WIth this in mind, we’d like to offer a FREE furnace inspection to anyone who feels like their home isn’t retaining heat well (or to the standard they’d prefer).
Here’s to a warm home this cold winter.
