4 Ways to Stay Warm On a Budget
Did you make it a goal to create budgets and stick to them in 2017? We like where your head is at, but keeping your home comfortable all winter long can quickly throw you off track. So, how can you stay cozy without spending a fortune this season? Try the proven methods below:
- Install a Programmable Thermostat: they can help keep costs down by only heating your home when you need it. Are you away from your home during the day? Set the temperature a few degrees cooler so the heat isn’t pumping while nobody’s home.
- Take Advantage of Your Surroundings: even in the dead of winter, the sun’s rays are quite warm. Allow them to penetrate through windows and doors to heat your home by opening up blinds and curtains during the day. Doing a renovation on your home? Consider having additional windows installed on the south-facing side of the structure.
- Throw on Some Layers: bundling up in a sweater or sweatshirt and wrapping yourself in a blanket is a great way to warm up for less. You can trap extra heat by layering up after a shower or bath.
- Stay Active: spending lots of time on the couch or in bed can make you feel cooler. Tackle a few chores around the house like cleaning up the bathroom or vacuuming the living room and we can bet you’ll feel much warmer. Plus, you’ll have a cleaner house – it’s a win-win.
