When temperature goes way down this winter, think twice before you touch that thermostat! There may be a few minor changes you can make to your home to stay warm without the hefty bill.
1. Rearrange your furniture
Make sure none of your vents are covered! This one might seem obvious, but making sure they’re not blocked can make a huge difference in the temperature of your home.
2. Put your oven to good use
Winter is the best time to make delicious comfort food like casseroles or pot roast. Using your oven on a regular basis will definitely add warmth to your home, and is a great excuse to cook a good meal every week!
3. Seal the cracks
Your doors or windows may be letting in a draft, making your home a little chilly. Get a professional to inspect your windows and doors, and offer solutions to making them more energy efficient. Definitely get a trusted professional opinion before outright replacing any windows or doors!
