How to Keep Your Home Warm for Less this Winter

Did you notice the drop in temperature late last month?  We’re almost halfway through June;  winter is here well and truly.

Are you struggling to keep warm?  Are you looking to reduce your heating costs?  Today we pen some tips which we hope help you keep your home warm this winter, and reduce your heating bills.

Close Blinds and Curtains
As soon as it begins to get dark at night – close your blinds and draw your curtains.  This will help keep warmth in from the day, and stop heat escaping through windows.

Use Draught Stops
Under doors can be a source for draughts, and can reduce the temperature of rooms.  Draught stops can be quite cheap to buy, or you could make your own and fill with rice or sand as part of a craft project.

Staying warm this winter

Reduce the Heat
Turn your heating down and keep it a lower, more even level.  This can be more effective than having short bursts of intense heat.  By turning your thermostat down – it can be a way to save on your heating bills.

Keep Doors Closed
If you leave doors open, or don’t close them behind you when leaving a room – the heat will escape.  Keep doors closed and warm only the doors you are in, to help keep yourself toasty.

Use Rugs on Timber Floors
If your home has timber flooring you could put down rugs to keep the heat.  This particularly applies in bedrooms and living areas.
