Cheap Ways To Heat Your House
A lot of your heat escapes through the attic and basement of your home. Make sure these areas are well insulated. You can seal gaps and holes in your home’s foundation with spray foam insulation. You can purchase spray foam insulation at your local hardware store for around $5.
Have your furnace checked annually. It will run more efficiently if it is in good working condition. You should clean the heat registers and replace the furnace filters on a regular basis. Depending on the type of furnace you own, two packs of furnace filters start at around $3 and go up from there.
If you feel a draft, install weather stripping around the doors and windows to keep the cold air out. This is a quick, easy and very inexpensive fix. You can purchase enough weather stripping for one window for less than $2.
A lot of the time, cold air seeps in under the doorways. You can install a rubber strip along the bottom of the door for under $10. Another option is to fill a tube of fabric with sand or rice. Place this at the bottom of your door to keep out the draft.
A programmable thermostat will keep your house warm and cut down on your gas and electric bill. Program the thermostat to automatically go to a lower temperature at night or for when you are not home. Programmable thermostats start at $20 and go way up from there depending on what type you purchase.
Throw rugs on the bare floors and heavy drapes on the windows will also help to keep your home warm this Winter. Soft blankets, a cozy fire and a warm drink go a long way as well.
