Staying warm is a very common theme during the fall and winter time, as Maryland has experienced plenty of cold temperatures in the last few years. Although Maryland is considered a southern state, do not be fooled. It can be freezing and frigid as well. Thankfully, there are plenty of smart ways to keep your custom home warm during the winter, so you will not want to pass up for the best efficiency and the most comfort as possible. Read on to learn more!
Benefits of Having a New Custom Home
If you’re planning on moving into a new home, then you are in luck. You have the golden opportunity to purchase a new construction home. What’s more, custom house building comes out at a reasonable price and timeline here at Robin Ford Builders all across Maryland. If you’re looking for a custom home or own a customized home, you can be sure that today’s building materials and standards are much more energy efficient. You will not only have to handle leaky windows, attics, or doors.
Kind of Home Heating
Ultimately, the main goal of staying warm during the winter is to keep every person warm instead of the whole house. However, in keeping your custom home warm, central heating still takes the cake as the most efficient way to heat up your house so far. A programmable thermostat can also help you make the most of your central heating by fully optimizing running temperatures and times. Nonetheless, it definitely proves helpful to have a fireplace or a nice wood-burning stove, and nothing says heat like a real fire.
Ceiling Fan Tricks
Heat always rises, and there is a way to push it down to ground level. Did you know that a few ceiling fans have winter modes? With the blades tilted and rotating in the proper direction, the fan will then push air down instead of up, so any warm air around the ceiling stays closer to you.
Placement of Your Furniture
Aside from any fixtures and construction methods, furniture placement is one simple way to promote a warm and comfortable home. All that is required is to check that no furniture blocks the vents. Blocked vents might disrupt the airflow and pressure within the heating system and prevent heat from entering every room.
