What To Do To Help Keep Your Home Warm

With the cold weather less ‘creeping in’ and more ‘smacking you in the face overnight’, many people will be left wondering what happened to the milder weather they went to sleep in, and why they can see ice on the inside of the bathroom window of the morning.

It is freezing, and with the price of gas, electricity, and fuel going up, many people have been forced to look for alternatives to keep their homes cozy (and safe) without going bankrupt.

Thankfully, there are a few different ways in which you can help keep your home warm, and this piece is here to help.

Insulation is Your Friend


One of the challenges of keeping a home warm is keeping the cold air out and the hot air that has been generated inside your four walls. It is all very well being able to heat up your home, but it can feel futile if what little warmth you do get manages to get sucked out into the ether the moment the heating goes off. While it isn’t exactly easy to start putting insulation into your building and can be a massive job not perfect for winter, there are little things you can do that can make a big improvement.

For example, shrink-wrapping your windows can offer an extra layer of protection over cracks, crevices, and drafts that come from around the frame. Glass is notorious for being a poor insulator, so having an extra layer of film over it can make a significant difference for not much effort or cost. 

Boiler Upgrade

While it is not exactly the best time of year to start poking around with the boiler, it is worth considering if you are in dire straits or want to plan ahead for spring. Many old boilers are inefficient, and not only does this waste money, but it will most likely not give you the heat you desire.

Boilers are expensive, there is no sugar coating it, but if you are able to invest, it could make your life more comfortable and save you money in the long run. You should also check to see if you are eligible for a free boiler grant to help with the costs. 

Electric Blankets 

Electric blankets are a great option to keep warm but for not a lot of money. They are cheap to run and work extremely well for localized heat. You can also get ‘wearables’, such as heated gilets, blankets, ponchos, and dressing gowns, which means you can keep your body warm wherever you walk, without having to heat up the whole room to get a similar result.
Wearables often come with battery packs, so you will probably be looking at 2 hours wear on average. This can be useful if you’re in a pinch or need to stay warm out of the house too. Electric blankets run on mains, so you can use them for as long as you need to without any interruptions!
