5 Ways to Keep Your Home Warm This Winter




1. Seal Your Doors and Windows
A lot of your home's heat can escape through your doors and windows. One way to help prevent this is to seal the openings using window film.

2. Let in the Light
Keep your curtains drawn during the day and let the sun naturally warm up your home.

3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
Getting a programmable thermostat will help you keep your bill low and your energy efficiency high. With these thermostats you are able to set the heat to a cooler temperature when you are gone and warm up before you get home!

4. Move Furniture Away From Vents
You may have unknowingly placed furniture in front of vents. Go around your house and check if you are blocking any vents. If so, make sure to move your furniture so that every room is getting its max heat potential.

5. Utilize Space Heaters, But With Caution
Space heaters can be great for keeping individual rooms warm, but they can be a high-risk fire hazard if you aren't careful. Make sure to keep any flammable material at least 3 feet away and make sure you don't leave the heater on overnight or when you aren't home.
