How To Keep Your Home Warm For FREE

Posted October 12, 2016

What if we told you that you could find ways to heat your home this fall and winter without spending a dime? You'd probably think we were crazy, right? Well, while you may still have to spend a few dollars here and there, there are lots of ways to keep your home comfortable for less this season.

Take Advantage of the Sun

On sunny days, open curtains and blinds on south-facing windows. This will allow the sun's warm rays to penetrate through and heat up your home. Close them at night to keep warm air trapped inside.

Take Care of Drafty Windows

Did you know that upwards of 20% of heat can be lost to the outdoors if you have drafty windows? Think of it like cranking up the heat with the windows open. It just doesn't make sense, right? Plug up cracks and gaps with caulk or weather-stripping to eliminate heat transfer.

Pay Attention to the Thermostat

While you're home and awake, there's no reason to have the temperature set much higher than you need it to be. Set the thermostat as low as is comfortable and remember to turn it down when you leave for the day and before you fall asleep. Also keep in mind that turning your thermostat back 10° to 15° for eight hours can save you nearly 10% annually on energy bills.
