Five easy ways to keep your house warm this winter

When winter hits and a house isn’t well insulated, a home can become even colder than the outside air temperature. This means that inhabitants will either have to brave the cold, or end up and paying a premium for heating. Luckily, there are some smart, practical and cost-effective solutions available to properly prepare your home for winter.

Close curtains and blinds at night

If your house has large single-glazed glass windows or glass doors, closing curtains and blinds at night will help retain warmth. While windows are great for allowing sunlight in during the day, they also let heat escape when trying to keep your house warm at night.

All-seasons ceiling fans are an efficient, environmentally friendly, and economical way to keep a house cool in summer and retain warmth in winter.

Move furniture away from heaters

Don’t place couches, armchairs, or other objects directly in front of heaters. Ensuring that heaters are free from obstructions such as furniture allows them to disperse heat much more evenly and efficiently, keeping the room warm.

Air Transfer Kits It’s important to ensure proper air circulation throughout the entire house, and this goes for all seasons. The during the Summer, ensure your fan is set to “auto” mode and not running continuously. Running the air conditioning fan all the time can lead to unnecessary ac repairs if parts wear out.
