As the winter temperatures arrive, you’re trying to do everything you know of to make sure your Hilton Head Island home keeps the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, added to your home’s attic insulation, and you even invested in a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to avoid wasting energy while you’re away.
Epperson Service Experts is here with a few more painless and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and toasty this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Hanging thermal curtains, or even thicker curtains, can help retain a little more heat inside your home. It’s simple to lose heat to a window with a very thin curtain, and much easier to lose heat to a window with nothing. Invest in some thermal curtains this season to help keep your home warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy recommends caulking your window frames and any potential cracks that air could leak from to not only help keep warm air trapped in your home during the cool season, but to also help ward off water damage and ensure adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Do you want an excuse to redecorate? We have it: laying rugs on hard floors could help with your home staying somewhat warmer during low temperatures, and at least would help to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that pretty chevron rug you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours sans guilt.
Heating Tune-Up - $
Most important of all is to be confident your furnace is up to the job of keeping you warm all cold-weather long. Be completely sure with a heating tune-up from Epperson Service Experts. Epperson now provides fall discounts on heating tune-ups. Call 843-619-3781 to be confident you and your loved ones are warm and toasty throughout the season.
