Lower your heating bills with these winter home improvements

warm room winter

In recent years, the weather and climate has changed dramatically, causing the weather to be intense and the temperature to drop in winter further more. In this scenario, keeping yourself and your house properly protected against the chilly atmosphere has become very costlier.

Below are a few home improvements that can help you with the costs of keeping your house warm without being a burden on your wallet.

Locate & Close Air Leaks

Foremost of all, you must check your house for the air leaks and close them for better protection against the wind and for effective heating which will ultimately reduce your cost. These air leaks are the gaps which can be found around your windows, doors, laminate floors, walls or fireplaces from where chilly winds of winter can easily seep in. We suggest you to fill them by using caulk or spray foam which will be a one time cost only and wouldn’t be more than 35$-40$.

Window Treatments Can Be Useful

Another thing that can improve your house decor as well as help you save on your heating bill is the window treatment. You can opt for heavy drapes and curtains which will give your house a very lavish feel but will also help in keeping the heat of the house locked inside. The cold air outside will not pervade inside your house through the glass and the heat and warmth of your house will not fade either. Getting these curtains and window treatment is also a one time cost which will help in saving from the monthly heating bill. Think about plantation shutters, they contribute to the thermal insulation of your house.

Buy More Rugs

We often tend to walk in our homes with bare feet which ultimately push us to increase the heating level and thus we end up with heavy bills. In this case, the best hack of winter is to go for wall to wall carpeting or rugs on the floor. This will keep your feet warm and will even help as insulation against cold. If you are worried about the expense you can visit a sale point or you can even shop from the online stores to find affordable rugs.
