3 green ways to keep your home warm this winter

Winter is just around the corner, which means that now is the time to make sure that your home will be able to stay sufficiently warm throughout these next few months. This is especially important if you live in a home that is older, as you likely find that it can get pretty drafty and cold if the proper steps are not taken. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can make sure that your home stays comfortable, all while living in an environmentally friendly household.

Here are a few tips for staying green and warm all winter long:

  • Seal everything: Before the really cold weather strikes, you want to make sure that you weatherproof the entire house. This means finding any possible leaks around your windows or doors and plugging them up with caulk, so you don't have to worry about any intrusive air.
  • Wall coverings: If you find the insulation in your home lacking, one of the easiest ways you can help the space retain heat is by investing in new drapes for the windows and walls. Not only will they look good in the house, they will also be able to stop any cold air from getting inside or warm air from leaking outside.
  • Window tinting: Like the drapes, having your windows tinted is another great way to heat up your home. The window tint will absorb the heat from the sun, even on the coldest of days, which will then be used to keep your home warm and toasty. There is an added benefit of having another layer of privacy and security on the windows.
