Saint Paul Insulation Company | Keep your home warm this winter with the following tips:
Below we’re providing you with a list cheap and easy techniques you can use to temporarily keep your home a little warmer by preventing cold drafts coming in, and also save you some money:
1 – Weatherize your windows with Plastic Shrink Wrap: Did you know you could simply stop by Menards or Home Depot and pick up window insulation film or plastic film that you could shrink wrap around your home’s window frames. This is probably the quickest and cheapest way to help keep your home a little bit warmer this winter while waiting to invest in an actual home insulation project. Saint Paul Insulation Company
2 – Maximize heat from the sun: One good thing about Minnesota winter is… that we still have the sun shining warm and bright! Unlike many other cities and countries where the sun disappears when winter arrives. That means you should make the most of the heat from the sun throughout the winter. During the day when the sun’s shining bright, make sure to keep your curtains and/or blinds open to maximize the natural heat from sunlight coming into your home. Just make sure to draw your curtains to a close as soon as that sun goes down and there’s only frigid cold air on the outside. Saint Paul Insulation Company
3 – Window Treatments: you can invest in blinds or curtains that are well-insulated or good on energy efficiency. They can help block some of the cold drafts trying to seep into your home. Saint Paul Insulation Company
