Ways to Keep Your Home Warm

Ways to Keep Your Home Warm

Keep warm in your waterfront custom home this winter with any and all of these ideas.

September 22 is the first day of autumn, and it is then that the seasons typically make a notable shift from warmer to colder weather. Marylanders looking for a new home might start to consider how they will stay warm in the winter. With Shore-Line Construction, you can find multiple ways to keep your home warm through a custom waterfront home.

Buying a New House? Choose New Construction

New construction homes offer advantages that existing homes might not. For instance, you can customize the floor plan and design exactly how you want, so the building will be move-in ready. With the right company, you can find a custom home that is well-built to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer.

Proper Insulation

Insulation is a part of what makes new construction a great choice. Your home will have brand new insulation that meets the newest standards of energy-efficient construction, which prove to result in homes that are significantly more energy-efficient than older models.

Energy-Efficient Heating System

The heating system should have an Energy Star rating, as it indicates an appliance that will certainly heat your home without inflating the energy bill. However, you must work with a professional to know what size and type of heater is appropriate for your house. 

Functional Fireplace

A fireplace that warms you up in the winter is a great feature for any home to have; it is an excellent heat resource should your power ever go out. In addition to or as a substitute for a fireplace, you could have a wood-burning stove as an emergency heat source.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans have two directions, and which direction your fans spin can make all the difference. Clockwise motion, or whichever the manufacturer directs, will push hot air downward toward you. 

Radiant Heat Flooring

Radiant heat flooring is a luxurious heating option that connects heat directly to your body through physical contact. The goal of keeping your house warm is to keep you warm, and this option does the trick, especially in tiled bathrooms.

Curtains, Rugs, and Cooking

Keep your curtains open during the day and closed at night so heat enters the home and stays there. Rugs will also keep your house cozier and warmer. Any kind of cooking, especially baking and boiling, will introduce heat into your home.
