2. Put in double glazing
If you have single glazing in your home, odds are you’re losing a lot of heat. By getting double glazing not only will you be able to keep the heat in for longer but you won’t hear the wind! You can go online to find out the cost of installing double glazing and get the best deal.
3. Insulate your home
Insulate your home including your loft as these are areas in your home which lose the most heat.
4. Keep your furniture away from radiators
If you have a sofa right in front of the radiator then there is no way for the heat to get out and heat up the room, so make sure your furniture is away from your radiators.
5. Draw the curtains
Drawing your curtains is a great, cost effective way to keep the heat in your room. The curtains will keep the heat in the room and if there are any holes etc at the windows, will stop any drafts from getting into the room.
These are just a few tips to help heating your home during winter.
