A Sure You Won’t Know Yourself With The Heat
Halloween is over and Christmas is coming! At this time of year I spend a lot of time in the house so I think it’s the perfect time to help you save money by giving you some home heating tips! Making some small changes can save you money and its better in your pocket. Put on the kettle and let’s go through some of the best ways to keep heat in your home.
Keep radiators free from obstruction
Avoid placing furniture or low hanging curtains in front of the radiators. It will stop the heat from projecting into the room.
Close the doors
I don’t know how many times I was asked ‘Were you born in a barn?’ as a child. I really didn’t get it at the time but now that I pay my own heating bill I completely understand. Close all the doors and keep the heat in!
For anyone building their own house or replacing their front door. Choose a door without a letterbox. Place a letterbox on the wall outside. We spend a lot of money on an insulated door and then we put a great big hole in it. When you think about it, it makes so much sense!
An oldie but a goodie. This is a great way to keep the living room warm. It doesn’t have to be old fashioned if you pick a nice one but a draft excluder definitely works. I have one in my living room.
Turn your thermostat down by one degree
Turning your thermostat down by one degree can save you up to 3% on your heating bill depending on your provider.
Turn radiators down or off in the rooms you do not use.
Regular maintenance on your heating system can reduce your bill. When the system is working correctly and you keep it topped up with oil you can save yourself a money because their will be very little wastage.
