When saying farewell to summer and welcoming autumn, you know one thing to be true: the temperature will start to decline from here on out. And although things don’t necessarily get chilly right away, now is the perfect time to start mapping out your gameplan on how to stay warm on those cold fall nights, efficiently.
If you’re looking for ways to efficiently heat your living space, all in an effort to save some money, here are some great ways to warm your home for less!
Utilize the Sun
Do you happen to have a room in your home where the sunlight pours in effortlessly? If that’s the case, use this to your advantage! One of the best ways to stay warm is to open the blinds/curtains of a sunlit window and let the sun’s rays heat your home.
By doing this, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference this will make for much less! Of course, the heat from the sun won’t last forever — but it will linger around for a decent amount of time!
Don’t Block Your Vents
Are the heating vents in your home out in the open or are they obstructed by furniture? If your vents fall into the latter category, then you might need to reorganize your room.
When vents are blocked, this not only limits them from doing their job, but it will make your heating system work twice as hard to give you the warmth that you’re looking for. By reorganizing a room to unblock heating vents, you’ll notice the difference when they’re no longer obstructed!
One of the best ways to lock in warm air (and cool air in the spring and summer) is to install weatherstripping in your home. No matter how big or small your house may be, weatherstripping will make a huge difference in comfort — and it’s all for the better!
To start, pick up some simple, relatively inexpensive weatherstripping from your local home improvement store. Once obtained, follow the application guide and start applying it to all drafty doors and windows! After it has been applied, you’ll reap the benefits of having a draft-less home!
