As the cold temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you know of to make sure your Fort Worth 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 lower the temperature to conserve 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 - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help retain a little more warmth inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warm air to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warmth to a window with nothing. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your 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 confident your heating equipment is up to the job 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 be sure you and your home are warm and toasty throughout the season.
