With the temperature continuing to drop and the price of home heating going up, people are doing everything they can to make sure that their homes are as cosy and warm as possible without having to spend too much money. There are many different things that can be done to help ensure the warmth of your house without having to run up a huge heating bill. Here are some tips on the different methods that can be used to help keep your house warm.
- Having a programmable thermostat means that you can have a controlled temperature in your home and the heating won’t be on constantly, meaning you will stay at a comfortable temperature without spending lots on fuel.
- Change the décor in your living room. Use autumn colours such as reds, oranges and browns to give the impression of warmth in any room.
- Having UPVC doors and windows can really help to insulate your house to keep out the cold and the warmth in.
- Place a draught excluder or rolled up towel along the bottom of doorways to keep out draughts.
- Having a cup of tea is a great way to quickly warm yourself if you are at home for a short time but don’t want to put the heating on.
- If you find yourself cold at night, don’t leave the heating on. Upgrade your duvet to a higher tog rating so that you stay cosy whilst you sleep.
- Make sure your loft is insulated. There are many incentives and offers from the government and energy companies to add insulation to your loft at reduced costs so have a look to see if you’re eligible.
- Curtains and blinds can help to control heating entering and leaving your house. Open them during the day to let sunlight and heat in but then make sure to close them at night to keep this heat in.
- Blankets and extra layers will keep you warm whilst watching TV without incurring any extra cost.
