Cozy Winter Home

Jan 30, 2017

When cold winter temperatures drive you inside, a warm cozy environment is important.  In South Carolina, we really don’t get enough cold weather to warrant installing radiant floor heating, so here are a few affordable tips to create a warm and inviting space to weather this winter.  Add accessories that literally provide warmth like candles, cozy blankets, and rugs.  Check your insulation to make sure you’re not losing heat. 

Check your windows and doors for any drafts and caulk any holes!  Program your thermostat for warmer temperatures when you’re home and cooler temps while no one is around to enjoy the heat.  It’s a good idea to get a yearly HVAC inspection, and ask the tech to check your ductwork as well.  Any leaks in your ducts could compromise energy efficiency by as much as fifty percent.
