Top 5 Tips on how to keep your home warm this winter

To keep maximum warmth and comfort in your home over the festive period Mistoria renovations are providing a top tips guide on how to help you achieve this so that you can enjoy winter in your home without any worries of the cold and at a minimum cost. Here are five low cost solutions to help fight the cold this winter:

Cover up draughts
  •  Blocking any form of potential draughts is a must in the winter as this can play a huge role in maintaining a comfortable temperature in your household. Items suchs as keyhole covers, letter box brushes or draught excluders can are all measures that can be installed to prevent draughts from affecting the temperature.

 

Utilising natural daylight
  • A common way to reduce cost during the winter period is to take advantage of the natural daylight during the day by having window dressings open such as blinds and curtains.  This method reduces costs and when the daylight has gone and the temperature starts to plummet then you can fire up the central heating system to maintain a nice, cosy temperature.
Conserving heat
  • Closing doors of un-used rooms is good method of conserving heat as this will allow the heat to spread only in the rooms that are going to be occupied by people.
Blocking heat
  • A common cause of heat not being able to spread is covering up your radiators, for example furniture may be blocking the radiator therefore making it unable to circulate around the room, or in other cases clothes. Clothes can also block the circulation of the heat coming from the radiator but also if the clothes are wet then this can contribute in dampness occurring in your home.
Insulation
  • Our last tip on how to keep your home warm this winter is a long-term money saver, This is to ensure that your house is insulated enabling heat to be absorbed instead of it escaping. Having your home insulated can also play a major part in again preventing dampness from occurring.
