Tip Tuesday - Keeping Your Apartment Warm

Winter is approaching and gradually days are getting colder. You’re in-unit heaters do well at keeping your apartment warm but here are some tips to give them an extra push:

 

1 .Remove all air conditioners from windows. Air drafts can be coming into your apartments from its openings.

 

2. Make sure all windows are closed and locked properly to keep drafts at bay.

Even in buildings with energy-efficient windows, cold winter air sometimes makes its way in. Place draft stoppers on sills and consider applying a window film kit. Contact your building manager or landlord for approval before applying adhesive materials to windows.

 

3. Check your radiators.

If you have furniture blocking the radiators, you’re blocking heat from getting into the room. Move the couch away from the radiator and the room should warm up faster.

 

4. Use rugs.

Rugs not only work to style a room and create a sound barrier for neighboring tenants below, but they also do a good job of keeping your feet toasty if you have tile or hardwood flooring.

 

5. Let the Sun Shine.

During sunny days, open the curtains and let some sunlight in. The rays will help warm you up even on the coldest days
