Use warmer drapes

If you are looking for your house to stay warm during the winters, consider quality curtains, which can increase the coziness and warmth inside the house. In the open entrance hang floor-length drapes that would keep your house sweltering. You can also hang between rooms, unused rooms, wide halls that would act as a guard for cool breezes to make their way into warm spaces. The drapes made up of thick cotton would be the best option to keep the house hot in winters.

Let your house have maximum sunlight exposure

During winter let your house preserve maximum sunlight in the daytime. For a direct sun exposure keeps the blinds or curtains open of your room windows to let the extreme sunlight come into the room. This is the best and cheapest way to keep your house warm, but you should also make sure that at night you close the drapes to cover the cold glass.

Seal doors & windows and find cold spots

Seal down the doors and windows and plug many of those leaks in the house. It is one of the affordable things you can do to conserve heat and increase comfort in our house during winters. If your home is breezy check it for air disclosures and cold spots. You can detect spots by using an infrared thermometer. It’s a tool that uses infrared sensors to detect spots that is colder than the surrounding area, and finds an air leak from the walls.

Use Rugs and carpets to keep the floor warm

Rugs and carpets often used to design and beautify the rooms, but during the winter, they can be utilized for an important purpose too. Thick rugs on the floor trap the cool air beneath and prevent it from oozing up and freezing the room.  The warmth of the rug will keep your feet cozy too, and you can walk barefoot without getting directly in contact with the stingy cold of marbled flooring.

Reshuffle your furniture for winters

For winters you can re-arrange your furniture as a convenient option to keep warm. If your bed or a sofa set is placed by the window, it can cause heat loss from your body due to the glass that is exposed to the outside environment. To avoid this, rearrange your furniture, if it is placed in the front of a large window placed alongside an external wall. Also, if your house has heat radiator, avoid placing large furniture in front of them as they might absorb the maximum heat you want.
