Winter has arrived for Cleveland and the rest of Ohio, and that means that homeowners across the state are bundling up and cranking up the thermostat. But there are better ways that you can keep your house warm this winter. Here are a few solutions you can use to improve your home heating situation.
While you might think it’s too late to install replacement windows or a new door, this isn’t the case. Professional contractors have the equipment to work in cold conditions. Whether you need to repair the weatherstripping around your windows or install a more energy-efficient door, some professional upgrades can go a long way in making your house more comfortable.
If your home suffers from poor insulation, there are a few other tactics you can use to keep out cold air. One of the most important things you can do is close your curtains at night. This extra barrier helps prevent the heat loss that occurs around your windows. Surprisingly, lining your walls with bookshelves or pictures can also add some extra insulation.
Finally, the cold won’t bother you as much if you stay closer to the middle of the room, rather than the walls. Repositioning your furniture could very well help you feel warmer! When temperatures in Cleveland drop below freezing, every little bit helps.
