Creating a Cozy Home for Holiday Guests

Most of us welcome the holiday season with open arms. What we don’t welcome are the notoriously high energy bills that come along with winter weather. Homeowners face a constant battle between keeping a warm, comfortable home and keeping some money in their wallets. See below to find out a few alternative ways to creating a cozy room other than cranking up the thermostat.

  1. Have a living room with large windows? Open up the curtains on bright, sunny days to allow the sun’s warm rays to penetrate the room. Close them during the night and on cloudy days to keep some of the heat from escaping.

  2. Add an area rug. Nobody likes cold feet and if your feet are cold, chances are the rest of your body is cold as well. A comfy rug is a great way to take some of the chill out of the floor.

  3. Cooking up a holiday feast? Leave the oven door open for a while once you’ve finished cooking. It will help heat your home and it’s a great way to cool the oven down after a hard day’s work.
