Want to stay cozy and comfy this Winter? Well try these 5 tips to stay comfy.
Get your furnace inspected. It’s worth making sure this major appliance is up for the season.
Have window air conditioning units? Cover them! Use a waterproof cover and keep out drafts.
Ceiling fans-remember to change the direction. When you change them to run CLOCKWISE they push the heat from the ceiling down to you for extra comfort. Don’t forget to reverse in the summer to move the hot air up and away from you!
Check out the weather stripping on your doors and replace if they are worn.
Outdoor water faucets…they make little faucet ‘socks’ that can help keep the warmth in during the cold months ahead.
Of course, the best solution is to have your home professionally insulated.
Be sure to close doors to unused rooms and keep the heat where you are.
Cover your floors! Area rugs add a nice color accent and warmth to your rooms.
Use decorative door warmers to keep the cold out. If you don’t have one handy…head out to your local hardware store and buy some pipe foam. You can cut it in half and slide it under the door OR use two and cover with a pretty fabric wide enough to slide one on each side of the door.
Remember to ALWAYS shut off space heaters when you leave the room. Never leave them unattended.
