As the cold nights draw in, it’s important to make sure that your home is warm! This time of year, energy bills can skyrocket, as we make use of central heating more. Here are five tips which can help you keep warm in the winter months without having to blast the furnace too hard.

Draught-proof your home


This can be an easy win. Filling gaps around windows and doors can not only help you save money on your heating bills, it’ll help the heat stay in your home for longer. Window draught excluder is an inexpensive insulation tape which can work miracles! It’s easy to fit and is easily manipulated to fit in the areas you need it!

Bleed your radiators


A radiator bleeding key can cost you as little as £1 from pretty much any DIY shop. It’ll open the small valve at near your radiator. However, it can make a big difference in how well your radiators work! Air can get trapped and this will stop the hot water in your radiator from rising. Simply insert the key and open the little valve at the top, you’ll hear a hiss as the air leaves the radiator and once you see water escaping the valve close it.

Close the curtains


Okay, so it seems like an obvious point, but a lot of heat escapes through the windows of your home. If you’ve got curtains, make sure to close them whenever you’re out of the house, so that heat stays inside! If you want to take this a step further, there are thermal curtains, designed to keep heat in… they may be a fantastic investment if you’ve got single glazing!

Use the oven to heat the house


When you’ve finished cooking, your oven stays hot for some time. By leaving the door open, it’ll let the heat transfer to your kitchen and keep you warm!

Roll out a rug

 

Wooden floors are a popular choice because they look great, however they also allow heat to escape. By putting down a warm rug, it covers gaps and ensures that your room stays warm.
