Keeping Heat In Your Home This Winter

Posted: Updated:

It's not May just yet and there's still plenty of winter left, along with plenty of days to keep that furnace running. But that can mean a bit of sticker shock when you open your next utility bill.

However, there are several easy and affordable ways to keep that heat inside and your bills in check.

Experts at the Home Depot in Fargo, like Milt Arneson, say one of the best areas to focus on is your windows and doors. You should try and make sure you utilize something as simple as window treatments to keep the warm air from escaping. 

"Windows are more efficient today but they're still going to be colder than the air that's moving in the house," said Arneson.

Additional do it yourself projects include:

  • Spraying extra insulation in your attic or garage
  • Using a humidifier in your home
  • Reversing your ceiling fan to lower warm air  
  • Using insulting sheets in and around electrical sockets

Arneson, advises that all these projects are meant to be easy. If you're not very handy around the house, don't worry, the folks at the Home Depot can walk you through one of these projects step-by-step.

"They're going to be a lot easier than you really think, a lot of it doesn't even take any type of tools, a lot of it's very simple and easy to do on your own," said Arneson.
