Ditch the gloves. Ditch the scarves. Ditch the wool hat. You won’t be needing them while you stay inside your cozy home this winter. And you may be thinking, “how can I keep my home cozy without a drastic spike in energy bills?” Don’t worry, we’ve got a few solutions for you.
Fill The Gaps
Drafty windows and doors can make your home feel bitterly cold. Homeowners often forget to lock their windows during the winter time and this can cause small gaps. Make sure they’re closed tightly and add weatherstripping if there are still gaps or cracks. It’s also important to insulate between the window frame and the wall to prevent cool air from entering and warm air from escaping.
Having a towel warmer installed in your bathroom can make a world of difference. Just think about how soothing it would be to wrap yourself in a toasty towel after getting out of the shower. You can even use them as warm blankets on those frigid Twin Cities days.
Broken or damaged baseboards are futile. Not only will they fail to heat your home, it could costing you money. Vacuum up dust and pet hair to keep them clean and have your heating company replace them if they’re not working properly.
