I don’t know about you, but it’s cold out there. There are very few places in the world that January isn’t a miserable month, and when you are living in one, it’s hard to make sure that you stay warm. Every single room and window of your home feels like it is letting in the cold, and it’s in those moments you wish you had some advice about how to make it warmer.
The good news? We’ve got just that for you. In this article, we’re going to talk you through several ways that you can make your home a warm one. You shouldn’t have to suffer from the freezes when you’re inside your house, so let’s get you warmed up, shall we?
- Check the windows first, as you can insulate your windows rather cheaply. You can do things like add window treatments and motorized shades to keep the heat in the home, or you can contact a window film installer to have a new film put in. It’ll make your home look good as well as keeping the heat in through the winter months. With practice, your windows can be an integral part of saving you money on your energy bills.
- How many times did your parents yell at you for leaving doors open when you were growing up? Yep, there’s a reason! It would help if you shut the doors behind you to keep the heat in. It’s a cheap and cheerful way to insulate your home!
- Look into the residential insulation services offered in your area. You should also check with your local government to see if any free home insulation schemes are going. There are plenty of options out there for people who need extra help.
- Curtains on doors and windows can help to keep the draughts from getting into your house. Just make sure that you buy thermal lined curtains; otherwise, this would be a waste of insulation money!
- This video can teach you how to make your own draught excluders yourself. You’ll be able to stop the heat leaking out from under the doors, and you can even make them in the right color schemes so that your home has something stylish and classy.
- Always bleed your radiator: no blood will actually emerge in this activity. Your heaters have air trapped inside of them that builds up over time, so when you bleed them, you let the air out and the water to go where it needs to go.
- Learn how your thermostat works. Not knowing how it works properly could cost you money. Smart thermostats are a big deal, and you need to know how yours works so that you can save money on your energy. By changing it with just one degree, you could save a lot of money on your bills.
Making your home warmer is better for your comfort and for your bank account at the same time. Research your home needs as much as possible, and you will be living in a far warmer January than which you are used to!
