How To Stay Cozy In Your Office This Winter

Use natural heat. That’s right, let good ol’ mother nature’s sunshine in. During the day, open up those heavy curtains to get as much free heat as possible.

Install a programmable thermostat. Turn the heat down when you leave the office, and set it to kick back up an hour before your first employees return to the office.

Adjust your fans. Set your ceiling fans to rotate clockwise at a low speed. This will drive warm air down into the room.

Look for draughts (even the small ones). Features such as old windows and service doors are oftentimes overlooked in the office. Test them for draughts, then take care of the problem. Small fixes can make a big difference during a Minnesota winter.

Get your heating system professionally checked out. If you notice your heating bill increasing regularly, there might be a bigger problem. Hire a professional, and you could save yourself a lot of money in the long run.

Use tin foil. If your home still uses radiators for heat, wrap some tinfoil around a piece of cardboard and slide it between the radiator and the wall. This will reflect the head back into the house rather than letting it out.

Close the door. Don’t let your front door hang open or get caught with a gap. Make sure it can close quickly and easily without slamming shut. Even main doors are an important place to look for draughts.

Get a rug. If your floors aren’t insulated, there is a chance they are sucking up a lot of your heat. Do yourself a favor and cover up those wood floors this winter with a seasonal rug.
