4 Ways to Keep Your Home Warm for the Holidays
Nothing says Christmas like some hot mulled cider by a roaring fireplace. But we can’t have a fireplace roaring 24/7, so how do we keep our home warm and cozy without it? Well here are a few suggestions to keep your home warm for the holiday!
- Lock Your Windows…or replace them! – Replacing your windows with energy efficient choices can not only seal in the heat, it can save you money on your heating bills!
- Install A New Entry & Storm Door – Today’s door products offer energy efficiency, functionality, and beauty which are critical elements to installing show-stopping entryway doors for your home!
- New Blown-in Insulation — Proper insulation can help regulate your home’s internal climate to keep your family comfortable all winter long!
- Install A New Chimney Liner — A poorly sealed chimney could be a source of drafts or poor airflow that interferes with your home’s climate control, which can impact your energy bills and, therefore, your wallet.
Windows and outside doors account for most heat loss. Followed by other holes in the walls and insulation. The best solution is to replace the window with a new, more energy efficient window and proper caulking. Also make sure the insulation above the room is adequate.
As a final tip, caulking and weatherstripping your windows and doors are a quick, simple and inexpensive way to save on your energy bills. According to Energy.gov, sealing the air leaks around windows and door frames could save you 30% on your energy bill.
