Keep Your Home Cosy This Winter
Hello there, and welcome back to our blog! Here at Panhandle Insulation, we realize that Florida is not known for its particularly harsh winters. Even though this fact is pretty well understood, it doesn’t mean that people can’t benefit from some insulation tips to keep their home warmer this winter. Even if the temperature falls into the mid-sixties, that is enough of a temperature difference to create a little chill in the home. In today’s post, to help all of our readers, we are going to go over some simple strategies that can be used to make sure that a home is retaining as much heat as possible.

Keep the Heat
Making sure that your home retains heat during the winter is one of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bill. Because money is something that nearly everyone can use more of, we have taken the time to list some energy saving tips below.
- Seal Those Windows: One of the easiest ways for people to make sure that their homes are as insulated as possible is to take the time to inspect the windows. If you take the time to inspect your home’s windows, more often than not you will find one or two that leak a little bit of air. Our advice is to take some time and seal up any leaky windows that you may have until the summer time when you can have them looked at by a professional. To do this, simply take some small pieces of plastic cling wrap and tape them to the frames surrounding the window. This will greatly reduce the amount of air that escapes.
- Bundle Up: Having the heat on at night is the main culprit behind high energy bills in the winter. While it’s nice to be toasty while you sleep, keeping your house at 73 degrees for nine hours a day isn’t doing your wallet any favors. Instead, keep your heat in the upper 60s at night and throw a few extra blankets onto your bed. Even though you may think that it will get too cold to be comfortable, you might be surprised at the effect that a few blankets can have on your level of comfort while sleeping.
- Invest in Good Insulation: The best way to make sure that your home is able to properly retain thermostat settings is to make sure that it is properly insulated. Without good insulation, it doesn’t matter what other steps you take to make your home warm. If you’re looking for an insulation option that offers the best in thermal retention, we suggest that you take a look at our spray foam insulation services.
