How to Keep your Home Warm in Winter?

Posted on 24th September 2021

There’s nothing better than coming back to a comfortable, well-heated home after a stressful day at work or school. And there’s nothing worse than coming home hoping for a cozy ambience only to be welcomed by a cold house that takes ages to heat up.

And that’s something that many homeowners struggle with. With virtual classrooms and work-from-home becoming the new normal, keeping your house warm and comfortable has become the number one priority.

In this post, we look at some things you can do to keep your home warm and cozy during those harsh winter months.

Rearrange Your Furniture

The placement of your furniture plays a huge role in heating your home. If any piece of furniture is blocking the radiators, the room won’t heat up well.

Be sure to move the couch away from the heating source. This will ensure the room warms up quickly and efficiently.

Draught Proof the Windows

Draughts can be a huge problem, especially during winters. In several homes, especially those with single glazing, up to 50% of heating energy is lost owing to uncontrolled draughts. This can make heating your home difficult. Because they are uncontrolled, draughts can let in too much cold air into your home.

By draught-proofing your windows, you can eradicate air leakage, thereby improving the comfort and warmth of your home. Draught proofing is an inexpensive yet highly effective way to keep your home warm whilst reducing your energy bills.

Add Rugs

If you are after a quick, easy solution to warm up your room, then throw down some rugs on the floor. Layering up rugs is not only trendy but your home will instantly feel warmer and comfier.

Use the Curtains

The sun offers a free source of heat, so be sure to make the most of it. Open the curtains and heat up the room in the day. When the sun sets, shut the curtains, which will act as an additional layer of insulation, keeping the warmth inside the home.

Add Additional Insulation

Did you know that 25% of heat is lost through the roof?

Fix this issue by insulating your home by adding at least 25cm of home insulation across your loft. For best results, be sure to check up your walls. After all, at least a third of the heat in an uninsulated home finds its way through the walls. Cavity wall insulation can help save as much as £160 a year in energy bills.
