How to Handle Temperature Fluctuations in Your Home
Dealing with the fluctuating weather can be cumbersome, especially when it comes to keeping a comfortable temperature in your home. Here are a couple methods to use in order to make things easier during this tricky season.
1. In order to keep from constantly varying the setting on your thermostat from heating to cooling and back, keep the setting as you normally would and wear a light sweater while your're at home. Small changes in temperature are fine but try to refrain from switching back and forth too much in order to avoid raising your energy bill.
2. Make good use out of your window treatments. Not only used for privacy, blinds and curtains definitely help with temperature control inside your household. If it's getting too cold inside, allow the natural sunlight to come through and warm up your house. On overcast days, close the blinds in order to trap the existing heat inside your house. Keeping them closed also helps when you have an issue with drafts coming through your windows.
