It’s officially winter in Fort Collins. Snow is starting to fall regularly and the temperature is starting to drop. That said, just because it’s cold and snowy outside doesn’t mean that it has to be cold and uncomfortable in your Fort Collins apartment.
As a provider of apartments for rent in Fort Collins, we understand the struggles associated with winter — especially for CSU students. Not only do you have to deal with cold weather, but you also have to trudge through the snow on your way to and from class. Luckily, when you live at the Landmark Apartments, you can rest easy knowing that there is a warm apartment waiting for you when you get home.
That said, some people aren’t so lucky and have chronically chilly apartments. Because of that, we thought that we might discuss a few helpful ways to keep your apartment warm this winter!
Utilize Your Ceiling Fan
We know, it might seem odd to turn on a household appliance that is usually used to cool off a room. Ceiling fans can prove to be a valuable tool to keep your apartment warm as well — if you reverse the fan, that is.
Hot air naturally rises in your apartment. By reversing the rotations of your fan, you can pull the cooler air upwards and push the warm air that has risen back down. Now warming up your Fort Collins apartment is as simple as flipping a switch!
Install Draft Stoppers
One of the most common ways that apartments lose heat is through the crack under the door — no matter how small it may be. Because of this, warming up your apartment can be as simple as installing a draft stopper to fill in the crack and trap warm air inside.
You can buy draft stoppers at a variety of lifestyle stores and online marketplaces. There are also plenty of tutorials online that can teach you to make your own.
Use A Humidifier
If you moved to Fort Collins from the Eastern United States, you likely have noticed that our winters are cold and dry. In fact, after moving to Colorado, many people have issues keeping their skin moisturized. Luckily, there is a way that you can make your apartment a microclimate that reminds you of home!
Because cold air holds less moisture than warm air, adding humidity to the room can help keep the room warm. Additionally, a humidifier can help prevent dry, itchy skin, sinus congestion, and allergies.
