Keeping a cosy and warm home in the winter is important not only from a comfort point of view but also from a health perspective. Having a home that is too cold can cause illnesses and is particularly dangerous for elderly people as well as young children and babies.
So how do you keep your house warm without spending a small fortune on heating bills? Here are some tips that could help you to do that…
Windows are one of the parts of your home that could be letting the warm air out, and you may even have a draught from your window. A really easy way of dealing with this is to get some thermal curtains or blinds – these are designed to keep the heat locked into your home and not let it escape via the windows!
Your central heating itself may be costing you more than it should – if it is old and inefficient it may be time to update your heating and have a system installed that will save you more money in the long run. Make sure that you get a professional company to advise and install it for you such as this boiler installation Gloucester based company HPR services.
It is also worth thinking about your floor – if you don’t have carpets, you may want to consider them in some rooms, like the bedroom, or add some rugs. Adding draught excluders along the bottoms of doors is also a great way of keeping the cold at bay.
