With the months getting cooler, some homeowners may be looking for ways to warm up their residence without breaking the bank at the same time. CreativeLoafing.com recently suggested some effective ways to insulate a home that won't require a full-scale renovation.

One of the most fundamental additions to a home should be extra blankets and these don't have to be limited to the bedroom. The news source states that throwing comfortable linens on couches, chairs and anywhere else that might need a little more warmth can do wonders.

For those with laminate, wood or tile floors, it may also be a good idea to dress up surfaces with fuzzy rugs, so that rooms don't feel like ice without socks and shoes.

A big place for drafts that often goes unnoticed by homeowners is the fireplace, as old and rickety flues can let in cold air and allow heat to escape. To remedy this problem, the news provider recommends installing glass panels in front of the hearth, which can add warmth and class at the same time.

Window treatments are another important part of making a house better insulated. Honeycomb cellular shades can keep frigid drafts outside a home by stopping them at the windowpane, and keep air conditioning inside during the summer.
