Winter roofing issues: Three ways to keep your home warm and toasty this winter
Winter (and possibly winter roofing issues) has finally hit us hard this year, with snow and brutally cold temperatures. That doesn’t mean you still can’t have a warm and toasty home! If you are looking to up the cozy factor in your home this winter, and avoid winter roofing issues, there are a few things you can do now to stay warm and toasty. Some are big and some are small but you can banish the chill and cold.
Here are three ways to keep your home warm and toasty this winter and avoid winter roofing issues. Read on:
Let the sun in
If you are lucky enough to have a home with southern exposure, use it! On those days when the sun is out, open the blinds and curtains and let the sun warm your home. You’ll be amazed at how well it works! And on days when it’s not sunny, make those curtains do double duty by insulating you against cold air. You can also use sealants or draft dodgers to keep out cold air by doors and windows. But if you notice a lot of cold air coming in you might want to consider…
One of the biggest ways you can increase the comfort of your home is to install new, more efficient replacement windows. If your windows are more than 20 years old, chances are they aren’t as efficient as they could be, meaning your home is colder in the winter and warmer in the summer – and it’s likely costing you money EVERY month in heating (and cooling bills). And yes, we CAN install new replacement windows in the winter.
Check your furnace – and fireplace
There’s a chance your furnace isn’t working as efficiently as it could be so if you feel like your home is always cold, have your furnace inspected. Also, check your filters to make sure they aren’t in need of replacement. Also, if you have a fireplace – use it! There’s nothing warmer (or cozier) than a fire.
