Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat

October 24, 2016

As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Haltom City home traps the warm air produced by your furnace. You’ve added sealant around doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home.

Stark Services is here with a couple more simple and affordable recommendations to help keep you warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.

Thermal Curtains - $$

Installing thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s easy to lose warm air to a window with a very thin 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 suggests caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.

Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$

Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cold temperatures, and at least would help to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that adorable chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.

Heating Tune-Up - $

Most important of all is to be sure your heating equipment is up to the task of keeping your home warm all season long. Be completely sure with a furnace tune-up from Stark Services. Stark Services now offers fall discounts on Precision tune-ups. Call 817-668-6689 to make sure you and your home are warm and toasty throughout the season.
