Tips to beat the cold this winter

Posted: December 2016
With the British weather forever changing we’ve come up with the best ways to help you keep warm this winter (and possibly the British summer!)

1. Add some Feng Shui to your home

First one is a quick fix! Simply rearrange your furniture so it’s not blocking the heat from your radiators allowing it to circulate to the rest of the room.

2. Kill two birds with one stone

Leaving your bathroom door open when running a hot shower or bath will allow heat to travel to other areas of your home.

3. Keep warm with microwaveable toy

If you’re after a more cost efficient way of saving a little money and energy try and invest in a microwavable heated soft toy. Similar to a hot water bottle but instead you heat it up in the microwave for a minute or so this is a much cheaper way of keeping yourself warm compared to boiling the kettle.

4. Radiate heat

Next time you pop out pick up a few meters of tin foil. By placing tin foil sheets behind your radiators will prevent heat loss through walls and instead will reflect the heat back into the room.

5. Close the door

If you’ve got a spare room that’s not in use, switch off the radiators and keep the door closed. Last thing you want is to spend money heating up an empty room or letting the cold air circulate through to the rest of your house. Perhaps even invest in a draught excluder for the door to stop the cold air from getting out.

6. Seal up the chimney

Stop heat loss up the chimney, if you have a fireplace that isn’t in use consider having this capped to help you save money in the long term. A cheaper alternative would be to invest in a chimney balloon this simply stops the heat in the room being lost up the chimney and draughts coming back down.

7. Fill in the cracks

By sealing up all those cracks and gaps around your home can stop cold air coming into your home. Even the tiniest of cracks can often let in a lot of cold air!

8. Keep your feet warm

A lot of heat can be lost in flooring if not insulated. By throwing a rug over your wooden floor wont only keep your feet nice and warm but will stop cold air rising into the room. is a deal sharing platform. Share, vote and comment on deals today!
