Smart Ways to Retain Heat This Winter
Does your home constantly feel cold?
Are you having a hard time getting warm?
Are you looking for ways to keep your home feeling cozy all winter long?
Maximize the heat in your living space. These simple and inexpensive solutions not only contribute to energy efficiency but also let you maximize heat in your home, including:
Take Advantage of Your Curtains. Leave your curtains open during the day to capture as much free heat as possible. Once nighttime settles in, shut your drapes. This provides an extra layer of insulation to prevent warm air from escaping your home. Your windows should not have leaks or gaps so the heat stays in and the drafts stay out.
Install a Programmable Thermostat. Instead of manually adjusting your thermostat every time you leave your home, it’s more practical to install a programmable thermostat to do the job automatically. This allows you to set your preferred temperature during the day while you’re at work (since you don’t need to keep your home heated while you’re away). Setting it lower while you’re sleeping and higher at other times can save you up to 20% on your utility bills.
Arrange Your Furniture. If there’s any furniture blocking your vents, move it. The same goes for your curtains or hanging clothes. This ensures that every room of your home is getting the most out of your heating system.
Close Doors. When you spend a lot of time in certain areas of your home, close the doors to that room to keep the warmth sealed in. For open spaces, consider using room dividers to limit energy loss.
