If you want to stay warm in your home this winter, there are some basic steps you will need to take. Things like installing a programmable thermostat and updating your HVAC systems are obvious, but there are a lot of smaller and less expensive things you can do to make your home warmer and more energy efficient.
For starters, remove obstructions from your heating vents and make sure the heat is getting where it needs to go via heat deflectors and properly set ceiling fans. Keep the cold out by weatherstripping, putting a rolled up towel under your door, and adding storm doors. Every extra layer helps. Consider getting an energy audit to see where most of your energy is leaking out of your home.
