Tips for Keeping the Chill out of Your Home
While it may seem like the impossible task, keeping your home warm as the fall weather reduces outside temperatures is possible without using a lot of energy. To help get you started, Disaster Kleenup Thistle DKI Nevada has the below tips to offer.
If your home includes a fireplace then you are looking at the perfect method for keeping your home warm without the need to flip a switch. The key to using your fireplace is to ensure that it stays clean and safe. It’s worthwhile getting a professional in to do the job of cleaning, but keeping it safe is up to you. For example:
- Always use a fireguard.
- Don’t decorate it with items which can catch alight.
- Don’t hang your clothes in front of it to dry.
- Be sure that items or furnishings in your home can’t fall into the fire.
- Never leave a fireplace unattended.
Utilize Your Kitchen Heat
First off, let’s state that it isn’t a good idea to use your kitchen cooking items as heating. That is to say, don’t switch on your oven and open the door to create a heater. However, if you are already cooking dinner, then heat will be coming from the oven anyway as you cook, so use this. If your kitchen connects with a living space, open the door and position a small fan to create a flow of air from your kitchen to the living area. While it won’t act as a heater, it can work to take the chill off the air for you and your family to comfortably watch TV.
Choose One Room
Space heaters are handy devices, however, they can use a lot of electricity if they aren’t utilized correctly. Instead of placing one or a few around your home and opening your doors, choose one living space which can be closed off which you and your family can enjoy. For example, the living room is a great place because your kids can do their homework while you watch TV or catch up on the latest blog updates. This is the exact purpose of a space heater, and using it in this manner won’t cost as much as you would expect. Of course, it’s always good to stay safe when using such devices, so be sure that you never leave it on unattended and put it out of the way so that it isn’t anywhere you can knock over but also isn’t too close to any furniture or home items which could become scorched or catch alight.
