As the cool temperatures move in, you’re doing everything you think of to make sure your Tempe home traps the warm air brought in by your heating equipment. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to save energy while you’re away.
Orangutan Home Services is here with a couple more painless and affordable ideas to help keep your family warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even heavier curtains, can help keep a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose warm air to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Invest in some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help ward off water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that adorable chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most crucial of all is to be certain your heating equipment is up to the job of keeping your home warm all winter long. Be 100% sure with a Precision tune-up from Orangutan Home Services. Orangutan Home Services now offers fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 602-906-0111 to make sure you and your family are warm and comfy throughout the whole year.
