If you feel the cold really easily or are simply looking for ways to cut back on property costs, start with your heating, there’s a number of ways that you can warm your house up with little or no cost. If you’d like to reduce bills and stay warm, here’s six things to do before turning the heating on, they’re simply tasks or household items that you can use to help reduce your heating bills and stay warmer for longer…
- Close the doors in your home – use draft excluders
- Blankets – get snug and save money!
- Wear fleece or jumper
- Hot water bottle
- Eat warm meals and drink hot drinks
- Leave the oven door open after baking
Likewise, with your oven door, another way you can keep your home warm is by taking a shower with the door open, if no one is in, or you’re comfortable leaving it half-open, this is a great way to increase the heat. Not only that it will also allow the steam to spread through your home instead of being closed off in one room.
