What’s worse than coming home to a frigid house or apartment after a nice night out? Not much if you ask us – and not to mention, a cold place won’t impress your date! Follow the tips below to keep your sweetheart warm this Valentine’s Day!

Curtains: Open or Closed?

During the daytime, it’s important to keep your curtains or shades open. This will allow sunlight to enter and heat your home naturally. Close them at night to reduce the chill. You can also add tight-fitting, insulating drapes or shades to your windows to improve energy efficiency.

The Lower The Better

When you are home, set the thermostat to the lowest temperature without sacrificing too much comfort. When you go to sleep or leave the house, turn it down 10 to 15 degrees. This proactive measure can save you around 10% per year on your heating bills.
