Keep Your Home Warm Without Blasting the Heat Published on October 24, 2016 As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re doing everything you can to make sure your Salt Lake City home retains the warm air blown out by your heating equipment. You’ve prevented leaks by adding sealant around your doors, improved your home’s attic insulation, and you even installed a programmable thermostat so you can decrease the temperature to save energy while you’re out of the home. Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple more simple and affordable tips to help keep you warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank. Thermal Curtains - $$ Adding thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help trap a little more heat inside your home. It’s not hard to lose warm air to a window with a very lightweight curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a completely bare window. Buy some thermal curtains this season to help keep your family warm all winter. Caulk Window Frames - $ The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could get out from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help prevent water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality. Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$ Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on bare floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at the very least helps to make that stroll across the cold wood or tile more bearable. So that cute chevron rug you’ve been pining for at Overstock.com can now be yours without the guilt. Heating Tune-Up - $ Most crucial of all is to be confident your heating equipment is up to the job of keeping your family warm all season long. Be 100% sure with a Precision tune-up from Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Mountainwest Service Experts now offers fall discounts on furnace tune-ups.
