Top 5 Holiday Heating Tips

Posted on: December 20, 2016

The holidays are supposed to be the time of year when you spend quality time with family and friends laughing, reminiscing and loving. It’s not supposed to be the time of year when you’re stressing out about utility bills, but with colder temperatures settling in those feelings can be difficult to avoid. So, to make sure you have one less thing to worry about we’re letting you in on a few holiday heating tips – see below.

1. Add Area Rugs

Can’t stand the feeling of cold floors on your bare feet? Place area rugs on wood and tile floors. Not only is this a way to keep your feet more comfortable, it can help prevent warm air from escaping through the floorboards.

2. Leave The Oven Door Open

When your holiday meals are finished cooking, turn the oven off and leave the door open for a few minutes. This is a great way to cut back on the work your home’s heating system has to do by supplementing it with another source. You’d be surprised at how much warmer your kitchen and nearby rooms will feel.

3. Take Advantage Of The Sun

We all know how warm the sun can feel even on the coldest days of the year. Allow the sun’s warm rays to enter your home by opening curtains and blinds during the day. Just remember to close them up when the sun goes down to keep warm air trapped inside.

4. Use Your Ceiling Fan

It might sound a bit contradictory to use your ceiling fan to heat the house. While it doesn’t actually produce heat, running the fan in reverse is a wonderful way to bring warm air that has risen to the ceiling back down to the living areas.

5. Swap Out Your Bed Sheets

It’s time to take those cotton sheets off and replace them with flannel. Pairing flannel sheets with a thicker comforter is a great way to stay cozy at night without cranking up the heat.

Keeping your home’s heating system working smoothly is a top priority at ABC.
