Five Easy Ways to Keep Your Home Warmer in the Winter

  1. Make sure your doors and windows are free of drafts. This can cause heat to escape from your home, and cold air to come in. Usually, weatherstripping and draft guards can easily solve the problem.
  2. Consider installing a programmable thermostat. This can help you get better efficiency from your heating system by keeping your home warmer when people are there, but cooler during times when people are away or sleeping.
  3. Humidify your home air. Humidified air generally feels warmer. And, when you humidify your home air, you also help protect your furniture and woodwork from getting dried out, as well as your skin and nasal passages!
  4. Use heavier curtains or draperies. By installing heavier drapes in the winter, you can prevent some of the heat loss – and cold air entry – that can occur around your windows.
  5. Take advantage of the sunlight. On sunnier days, pull the drapes and blinds and let the sunshine in! This will help keep your home warmer by taking advantage of the natural warmth of the sun.
