Ditch the gloves, scarves, and wool hat. You won’t be needing them while inside your home this winter. You can keep your home cozy without a drastic spike in utility bills. Here’s how.
Fill The Gaps
Drafty windows and doors can make your home feel cold. Homeowners often forget to lock their windows during the wintertime, and this can cause small gaps. Make sure they’re closed tightly and add weatherstripping if there are still gaps or cracks. It’s also important to insulate between the window frame and the wall to prevent cold air from entering and warm air from escaping.
Having a towel warmer installed in your bathroom can make a world of difference. Wrapping yourself in a toasty towel after getting out of the shower would feel so great. You can even use them as warm blankets on the most frigid of days.
Broken or damaged baseboards are futile. Not only will they fail to heat your home, but it could also be costing you money. Vacuum up dust and pet hair to keep them clean and have your heating company replace them if they’re not working correctly.
