Energy-Saving Ways To Warm Your Apartment This Winter
The season of cold weather is here! Time to turn on the heat and pull out all of your cozy blankets and warm pajamas. It is also time to start saving up for the holidays. A great way to do both is to adjust the way you heat your apartment. Saving energy is not only good for the planet but can also help you save on your monthly apartment costs.
Draft Blockers on Windows and Doors
Cold air can seep through your windows and doors. Adding a draft blocker to any location is an easy way to keep the cold air out and the warm air in. You can purchase draft blockers, make your own, or even simply use a towel!
Open Your Blinds During Sunny Daylight Hours
According to Hunker.com, opening your blinds during the right time of day can help warm your home and save energy. Just remember to close them at night as extra insulation to block out any cold air coming in.
Focus on heating the rooms you frequently use first. Close the vents and doors to block off places you don’t use often or don’t need a lot of heat in and focus on heating the spaces you do use. Also, close the door to the room you are heating to keep the heat in.
Reverse Your Ceiling Fans
Remember that heat rises; switching the direction of your ceiling fan can force rising warm air back down into your space, a great tip from Apartmenttherapy.com. It is best to operate the ceiling fan at low speed in the clockwise direction, according to EnergyStar.gov.
These simple tips can help cut some of your energy bills and add extra warmth to your home. Want more? Simply Camden has other excellent energy-saving blogs for you to enjoy: 5 Ways to Stay Warm in Cold Weather, How To Avoid A High Energy Bill - Part 1, How to Avoid a High Energy Bill-Part 2
