With the cold weather continuing into 2016, many of us are beginning to wish for spring. During this time of year, it is not uncommon for heating bills to be higher and our toes to be colder.
Did you know that the type of flooring you install in your home can impact how warm your home feels? Making the jump to carpet can lower your power bill and keep you warm and toasty.
The reason behind these benefits, is that carpeting effectively absorbs heat in the fibers, which helps to keep your home insulated. You may have to continue to run your furnace during the winter months, but you may be able to cut down just a bit.
An added benefit is that carpet feels wonderful between your toes on a chilly morning.
If hardwood, laminate, tile, or vinyl are your only options for flooring, consider adding an area rug to the space. It can add some additional aesthetic appeal, and also a bit of warmth.
