As the winter temperatures move in, you’re trying everything you think of to make sure your Fort Myers home retains the warm air blown out by your furnace. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to save energy while you’re away.
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some more painless and affordable tips to help keep you warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Adding thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help trap a little more warm air inside your home. It’s not hard to lose heat to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a completely bare window. Invest in some thermal curtains this season to help keep yourself warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy advocates caulking your window frames and any possible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep heated air trapped in your home during the cold, but to also help avoid water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Have you been looking for an excuse to redecorate? Here it is: laying rugs on your floors could help keep your home somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that cute chevron piece you’ve been eyeing at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt.

Most crucial of all is to be sure your furnace is up to the mission of keeping your home warm all cold-weather long.
