Stay Warm This Winter While Saving Money
Stay warm this winter while saving money on your energy bills. Invest instead in adding more insulation and buying energy saving products. All this will repay you by lower energy cost for years to come. Check all of your appliances and even your lamps. Replace any that are old and anything that uses excess energy. Unplug appliances when not in use. A plugged up device will continue to use energy, even when turned off.
Add extra insulation in your attic. This is one of the best ways to save money this winter. Whether you add a blow in type or insulation blankets, it must be done right. Improperly installed insulation can draw moisture which can lead to mold, something your house does not need. Seal off any cracks to keep fibers from infiltrating the living area. This could lead to possible future health problems including respiratory problems and skin irritant.
Buy an Eden Pure type heater to supplement your furnace. These are economical to run and supply a good amount of heat, enabling your furnace to stay off longer this winter. They are safe to the touch, will heat up to 1000 square feet, and will blend in with your furniture decor. The prices are continuing to drop, so shop around first before you buy. Saving money is always a good thing.
Take advantage of the sun during winter. Open curtains to let the sunshine in and close them after the sun has moved on. Turn the thermostat down and dress warmer. Play games like ping pong, air hockey, and Foosball that keep you moving while warming you. Invite many friends over and take advantage of body heat. This is like having many mini furnaces for free. However you do it, stay warm this winter because it is a lot better than being cold.
