The cold winds are now starting to creep in, and before you know it, it's winter! The first thing you're going to do is, of course, set your house to be warm and cozy, but how will you do it without making your bills jump up to the roof.
Why spend so much when you can do it naturally. Let's all think about ways to reduce heat loss and keep that hot air in, so you can feel comfortable and enjoy your day.
the perfect way to make your floor warm is to use rugs. They not only help to beautify your space, but they also keep your feet warm if you have tile or hardwood floors. They offer a layer of insulation to the floor, holding chilly air beneath and preventing it from seeping up and chilling the room.
Your beautiful summer curtain might have helped you, but have you found the perfect curtain for winter? You can switch them out with a heavier one as it helps keep the room warm and leaves the cold breeze outside. You can choose whether you want an earth tone or pick the pastel ones, as long as they make you peaceful and happy.
3. Draft-Proofing your Doors
Draft-proofing your doors is another technique to keep warm air in and cold air out. You can install a Draft Blocker since the space between the bottom of the door, and the frame is the greatest. Placing a brush strip, draft blocker, or hinged flap will significantly minimize drafts. Foam strips are installed around the inside of the frame, closing the area between the door and the structure and guaranteeing no air leaks. The most cost-effective option to draft exclusion is silicone sealant, which may be fastened around the frame. Just be careful not to suffocate yourself! Keyholes may be readily draught-proofed by putting an escutcheon plate outside the door. Sealing them is another excellent method.
4. Change your Ceiling Fan's direction
If you have a ceiling fan, you might be wondering if it can help you maintain the heat in your house. Absolutely! The best way to do this is to change your ceiling fan's direction to drive warm air back into the room; putting a fan at the top of your stairwells can send warm air back up through the floors to you. Set the fan speed to low for the best efficiency.
