Keep your home warm this Winter!Brr! The Winter chill is here and there is nothing better than staying rugged up in the comfort of your own home. If you are feeling that your house isn’t warm enough, we’ve put together a list of tips and tricks to help warm up your home this Winter! 

1.    Use those curtains 

Curtains and blinds are not just used as a decorative component, they are also a great way to help trap heat in your home. During the day open them to allow the warm sunlight in your home. At night, close them to prevent cool air flow coming through your glass panels and to trap the warm air in. 

2.    Be strategic with your furniture 

This is a great time to rearrange the furniture in your living room! One mistake a lot of people make is placing the couch directly in front of the heat source. By doing this you are not allowing the heat to circulate through the room which can cause the appliance to overheat. Instead, position your furniture around the heat source to allow ample heat circulation. 

3.    Rug it up! 

Tiles and floorboards are great during the warmer months of the year but during Winter, not so much. Adding a rug in the cooler months will help insulate your home against the cold and aid the retention of warmth in your rooms.

4.    Close those doors 

Simple, but extremely effective. Close the doors in the areas of the house or apartment that are not in use for optimum heating as this will section the heat in the areas that you are in. 

5.    Turn on the timer

Using timers on your heater will allow you to achieve greater optimum performance. Not only is this a great practice to prevent energy wastage, it also ensures the heating is used only when you need it most! Turning on the timer half an hour before your alarm in the morning and just as you get home from work will help remove the chill in your home instantly providing warmth, whilst decreasing the need to keep the heater on for longer periods of time. 

Feeling warmer already? Stay safe and warm this Winter!
