As the cold temperatures move in, you’re trying everything you think of to make sure your San Antonio home traps the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can lower the temperature to conserve energy while you’re away.
Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air is here with some more easy and affordable ideas to help keep your home warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warm air to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a completely bare window. Buy some thermal curtains this fall to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help avoid water damage and confirm adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on hard floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at minimum helps to make that walk across the cold wood or tile less miserable. So that cute chevron rug you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most crucial of all is to be certain your furnace is up to the mission of keeping your home warm all cold-weather long. Be absolutely sure with a heating tune-up from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air. Aramendia Plumbing now provides fall discounts on Precision tune-ups. Call 210-404-4233 to be sure you and your home are warm and cozy throughout the season.
