As the winter temperatures return, you’re trying everything you think of to make sure your Belleville home retains the warm air produced by your heating system. You’ve added sealant around doors, upgraded your home’s attic insulation, and you even purchased a programmable thermostat so you can reduce the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.
D&K Home Services by Enercare is here with a few more painless and affordable recommendations to help keep your family warm and comfy this winter, without breaking the bank.
Thermal Curtains - $$
Installing thermal curtains, or even denser curtains, can help keep a little more warm air inside your home. It’s simple to lose heat to a window with a very flimsy curtain, and much easier to lose warm air to a window with no covering. Invest in some thermal curtains this season to help keep your family warm all winter.
Caulk Window Frames - $
The Department of Energy suggests caulking your window frames and any feasible cracks that air could escape from to not only help keep hot air trapped in your home during the winter, but to also help ward off water damage and establish adequate indoor air quality.
Rugs on Hard Floors - $$$
Are you needing an excuse to redecorate? We’ve got it: laying rugs on hard floors could help your home stay somewhat warmer during cool temperatures, and at least would help to make that walk across the cold wood or tile more tolerable. So that beautiful chevron number you’ve had your eye on at Overstock.com can now be yours guilt-free.

Most crucial of all is to be sure your heating system is up to the job of keeping you warm all season long. Be 100% sure with a furnace tune-up from D&K Home Services by Enercare.
