Changes Within the Home
For starters, there are many things within the home that you can do in order to help keep in heat and ensure that your home “feels” as warm as it possibly can.
1. Check Your Fans.
2. Consider Programmable Thermostats.
3. Eliminate Draft.
4. Cover Windows.
5. Make Sure Filters Are Changed.
6. Turn Down Your Water Heater Temperature.
7. Switch Out Light Bulbs.
8. Use a Humidifier.
Summer is actually the best time to make your winter/heater related purchases. Most warehouses are anxious to clear out last year’s models and products and are desperate to make room for the new ones coming in and of course, as demand increases in winter when most people start to think about winterizing, companies will naturally increase their prices, knowing people will pay any price. So, if there are any items listed below that you may be in need of, the end of summer/beginning of fall is the best time to purchase.
2. Room Heaters.
4. De-Icers and Sand.
