There are lots of things in life that contribute to your dwindling bank account - heating your home shouldn’t be one of them. Fall is among us and with it comes cooler temperatures and the need to fire up that furnace, or so you thought! See below for a few ways to heat your home that aren’t so “run of the mill.”
Change Your Sheets: we’re not talking simply washing the sheets that have been on your bed for a few weeks now, we’re talking about switching them over from your cooler summer materials to warmer fabrics like flannel sheets and down comforters. You’ll be amazed at how low you can set the thermostat while still feeling warm and toasty at night.
Utilize Free Solar Heating: as long as the sun comes out, you can use up its energy for free! All you need to do is open up the curtains and let the warm rays fill your home.
Keep Those Ceiling Fans Spinning: you may think ceiling fans are only good at keeping you cool during warm days. If that’s the case, think again. Flip this switch on the fan itself to have the blades spin in reverse. This will bring warm air that has risen, back down to the living space.
Keep Your Vents Clear: notice that you have furniture or carpets blocking air vents? Free them up to allow warm air to flow freely through your house.
Bring The Cooking Indoors: we’re sure you got plenty of use out of your grill during the summer, but now it’s time to bring cooking back inside. Sure, it’ll cost a few bucks to run your stove or oven, but it’s a great way to multitask: cook a nice warm meal and heat some of your house at the same time!
