If you’ve lived in Frederick County Maryland for any length of time there’s no doubt that winter is on its way because we have cooler temperatures during the day and cold temperatures at night. That’s why in this article, we will provide you with several tips you can use for keeping your home comfortable during the winter

Find An Ideal Temperature To Keep Your Home Comfortable This Winter

Most HVAC system manufacturers recommend that homeowners keep the thermostats in their homes set between 68–70 degrees. This is considered to be a comfortable temperature that anyone can easily tolerate in a home during the winter months.

Some of the other things that you can do to keep your home comfortable during the winter include using fans to distribute the heat, wearing layers, and using blankets (if needed) when you’re relaxing.

If you plan on being away from your home for a few days during the winter, you should set your thermostat at no less than 55 degrees. This is considered to be the lowest recommended temperature in a home that will keep pipes from freezing

Invest In A Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat is another great way to save money on energy costs during the winter months because it will remember your temperature presets for every hour of the day. This will eliminate the need for you to turn your thermostat up or down constantly during the winter and you will save money as a result.

Additional Ways To Keep Your Home Comfortable During The Winter

Besides using the tips that we’ve mentioned in this article, some of the other ways that you can keep your home comfortable during the winter months include the following:

  • Invest in a dehumidifier.
  • Check the seals around your doors and windows to better insulate your home.
  • Seal all cracks in walls.
  • Purchase throw rugs for wood or tile floors.
