Now that the cold weather has arrived it is a great time to add a few steps in warming up your home in cost-efficient yet cozy ways.
Curtains are a great addition to the home. Some might think that curtains are outdated but there are many fashionable curtains available at great prices. The heavier the curtain the better. When closed the curtain can block the cold from drafty windows and help save you money on the heater bill.
Using the new Cree brand LED bulbs instead of incandescent and florescent light bulbs will save you money. They pay for themselves in a year and last will last nine more!
Replacing old thermostats with Nest brand thermostats can cut heating costs by thirty percent each month. They look better and are programmable. They track your habits and adjust accordingly as well as connect to WiFi and can be controlled from your ipad.
Having hardwood or tile floors can keep your home cooler in the warmer months but can be a bit chillier on your feet in the winter. Add a thick rug to warm the space up and make it more comfortable.
By simply adding comfortable and soft upholstery fabrics to lampshades, curtains, or a heavy throw blankets will make a room feel warmer.
