It’s getting cold out there! The good news is, you can stay comfortable and cozy inside. The better news is, you can do it without running up an exorbitant monthly bill all winter! Here are our best tips for keeping your heating bill low without sacrificing comfort.
One trick is simply to dress cozier. Bring on the fuzzy socks, slippers, and slouchy sweaters. Adding an extra layer to your outfit can go a long way in warming you up so that you don’t have to turn the heat up. You also can’t go wrong with bringing a hot water bottle into bed with you on those cold nights!
Putting ceiling fans on a low setting will force rising warm air back down to a lower level. This will prevent all of the warmest air from floating to the top of your home and not warming the lower areas where people are spending their time.
Don’t Block Radiators
Make sure that your heat vents and radiators are not blocked by furniture or other obstacles. This allows the warm air to flow and circulate through your home more freely instead of getting trapped in one place.
Shut Doors on Unused Rooms
If you have any rooms that you don’t need heated, such as guest rooms or other spaces that you do not use every day, keep the doors to those rooms closed so that your heat doesn’t travel into those areas. There’s no point to heating a room that you’re not going to use, and keeping the doors shut means you’ll use less heat to warm the parts of your home that you do use on a daily basis.
