We all want our house to be comfortable at any temperature, and when it is a cold day we want to come home to a warm house. If you turn on the heater and you notice your home is still cold, here are some tips to help keep heat from escaping and allowing cold air in.
Seal Your Doors and Windows
A lot of times, cold air enters your home through cracks and small openings around your doors and windows. A simple solution is to buy weather strips that can be placed around your doors and windows to keep the warm air in and the cold air out.
Sometimes your electrical outlets may be letting in cold air. For these situations, you can purchase foam outlet covers. These foam outlets act as insulation and are an easy fix for this issue.
Reverse Your Ceiling Fans
When the temperature starts to drop, reverse your fan’s rotation to pull the cold air up and mix with the warm air.
Add More Insulation
Sometimes adding a little more insulation to your home can help keep the warm air in. It may cost you some money upfront, but, in the long run, your heater will not have to work as hard.
