Unusual Ways to Keep Your Home Warm for Winter
We are always on the lookout for new and inexpensive ways to heat our home, because that bit of comfort can get expensive during the winter. When it comes to warming up, there are tons of ways you can do it without breaking the bank!
We have scoured for some of the most unusual and unexpected ways you can warm up during this long winter month, read on to find out more.
#01. Decorate – as much as you can.
Now is the time for you to bring out those decors that have been sitting in your attic. Putting those blankets and pillows out on display can make for a warmer – plus they make any room look put together.
#02. Use the oven as much as you can.
This is the best time for you to work on your baking skills. Who doesn’t want a fresh batch of cookies that goes perfectly well with a cup of coffee, right? Turning the oven on instantly warms up your kitchen and other nearby spaces.
#03. Double up your curtains.
Doubling up on the curtains is like creating a last wall of defense against the draft and could that could creep in from your window’s tiny crevices.
#04. Keep a bottle of warm water by your bedside.
Take a bottle of warm water and keep it under your blanket. This nifty trick can keep you warm as you drift to sleep. You’ll have just the right amount of heat to lull you to sleep – you don’t need that same amount of conscious heating when you are asleep, anyway.
#05.Use the sun to your advantage – when it’s out.
The sun may not come out as often during winter but when it does, make sure to take advantage of it. Drawing your curtains and allowing the light to come in brings some warmth coming from the sun.
#06. Don’t skip on the cardio.
Force yourself out of bed [or that couch] and start moving around! We all know how much cardio warms us up inside – plus, it will give you tons of energy to conquer the freezing day ahead!

See What Our Customers Are Saying:
When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.
Mitch from Twintech came out for our annual furnace inspection. We found him to be friendly, conscientious & he left the work area clean. We were also very impressed with the thoroughness of the job he did. This is the 2nd job weve had Twintech do for us & have been very happy with the results for each. We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.
Work was done on schedule, professionally, according to quote and with minimal inconvenience to building users. Very happy with the end result. The only area for improvement from my experience - need more timely quoting process.
The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didnt seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.
During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.
They were on time and very professional. I'm so glad I decided to go with Twintech, thanks!
Timely and appreciated - this was during the hottest days this year when our Air and Furnace way.
Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.
Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.
Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
