Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat Published on October 24, 2016 As the cool temperatures move in, you’re trying everything you can to make sure your Ogden home retains the warm air produced by your heating equipment. You’ve sealed any cracks around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re away. Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few more simple and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank. Thermal Curtains - $$ Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose heat to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your family warm all winter. Caulk Window Frames - $ The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help ward off water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality. Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$ Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on your floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that cute chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt. Heating Tune-Up - $ Most critical of all is to be confident your furnace is up to the task of keeping you warm all cold-weather long. Be absolutely sure with a furnace tune-up from Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Barlow Service Experts now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 801-436-8985 to be confident you and your home are warm and cozy throughout the whole year.
