Are you struggling to keep warm in your home? It may be the freezing temperature and chill winds outside, or perhaps your house is not very well insulated. Feeling cold in the house is a common complaint, especially in old houses that do not have double glazing and have a lot of spaces where cold air can get in. If the problem is your boiler and it needs fixing or replacing, visit https://www.blu-fish.co.uk/gas-heating-services-cheltenham/boiler-repair-cheltenham/ for Cheltenham Boiler Servicing.
Here are a few tips on how to stay warm in your cold house:
- Buy thermal curtains to provide your house with more insulation. When the sun is out, keep your curtains open so the heat can warm up your house and when it’s dark, shut your curtains tightly to keep the heat in.
- Move any soft furnishings and clothes away from your radiators. This includes your sofa, chairs, bedding, and curtains. BONUS TIP: Put reflective panels behind your radiators to ensure they are heating up the room as opposed to the wall.
- Put draught excluders all around the house. Use long draught excluders or rolled up towels to block the cold air coming in from under the doors, and use the draught excluders that are sticky on one side to block air coming in around the windows.
- Lastly, wrap up warm with extra layers of clothing and thick woolly socks as well as a scarf. Heat your bed up before you get in with a hot water bottle.
I know how uncomfortable living in a freezing cold house in the winter can be, so I very much hope that these tips will help. Improving the insulation of your house can really be the most effective way of keeping it warm in cold weather.
