The season of ice, snow and chills is upon us again. If you’ve been trying and struggling to stay warm this winter, you need to take my advice. Particularly if you’re worried that trying to keep your house warm is going to push your energy bills through the roof.
Wrap Up Warm
Don’t underestimate the value of wrapping up warm this festive season. I know your house probably seems cold, but it might be that you’re simply not wearing enough layers. If you don’t want to drive up the costs on your home, make sure you’re putting on plenty of warm, wooly clothing.
A simple suggestion sure but one that will be very effective. If you want to keep your home warm, you need to make sure that you’re trapping the heat. By shutting the doors, you can keep heat in different rooms of the home. That way, you won’t constantly be shivering in your living room.
Boost The Insulation
It’s possible that your home has terrible insulation. This is usually the culprit if you find you have to turn the heating up to extreme levels to get even a slightly cozy feel. Now, I know that changing the windows can be expensive. But there is another option. Instead, you can just put some thicker curtains up in your home. This will keep the heat trapped inside even when the weather is frightful.
Cut Electric Heating Costs
It is possible to cut your electric heating costs right down by saving at other points through the year. If you have a solar panel heating will cost you virtually nothing through the summer months. This means you can use it more when winter rolls around. The infographic has more information on this possibility.
