Winter is here, and there are still many cold fronts and blizzards to come our way. An easy step to keep yourself cozy inside is by having a floor that attracts warmth. The last thing you want to do is feel like a snowman inside your own home by walking on frigid floors. The type of floor you have in your home has a bigger impact on how easy your house heats up than people normally think. A floor that has quality insulation can lower your energy and gas bill that is spent mostly on heating in the winter. Find out which flooring is the best flooring for cold climates.
Carpet Provides Warmth and Comfort
Carpet flooring is an excellent flooring option for retaining warmth. Other flooring options, such as tile flooring, are not the best at absorbing heat like carpet does. The fibers in carpeting keep your home insulated, which can help lower your heating bill. Natural fibers in carpeting like wool and sisal keep warm and are eco-friendly. Wool carpeting is not only warming but it is also aesthetically pleasing. Carpets tend to trap heat more than wood flooring.
How to Keep Warm Without Carpet
If you don’t have carpet and have tiles, wood, or any other type of flooring, then it is wise to use rugs. Doorways act as openings to let in cold air, so place rugs or doormats in those places to create warmth. Rugs and mats have the fibers that carpets have to create insulation throughout your home. It may not be as powerful as a full carpet insulation, but it should help keep your tile or wood flooring warmer than without.
