Keep your Home Warm in Winter

Thick curtains

This is one of the main ways to protect your house from losing heat through the windows. Curtains with a thermal lining are a relatively cheap option.

Let the sunlight in during the day.

It’s important to try to use as much natural – and free – heat (in the form of sunlight) as possible. Window shades and curtains should be kept open during the day. Closing your curtains as soon as dusk falls will maximise your house’s potential to retain that heat.

Double glazing

heat-efficient but it’s relatively costly. If you can’t afford it, why not fake it? There’s many special films that you can put across single-glazed windows that can imitate the same effect. You can attach the film to the window frame using double-sided tape and then fix it using a hairdryer.

Stop heat being lost up the chimney.

It’s now fairly common to have fireplaces that are merely decorative. If you’re not using yours then you should consider a chimney balloon. There’s an amazing amount of heat that can be lost through an open fireplace.

Shut up unused rooms

Keeping doors closed will prevent cold air moving into the rest of the house and contain the heat you’ve generated in a smaller area.

Cover bare floorboards.

Floors account for as much as 10% of heat loss if they’re not insulated. Those with wooden flooring have to deal with heat loss. Rugs and blankets can help mitigate this and have the added bonus of keeping your feet warm.
