Read our top tips on how to save money on your heating bills below:
Use your oven's heat: After cooking dinner, don't let the heat go to waste! Open the oven door and let the remaining warm air circulate throughout your home.
Lower the thermostat: You don't need to sacrifice comfort for cost. Try turning down the thermostat by a few degrees to save money on heating bills without compromising coziness.
Uncover your radiators: Don't let furniture block your radiators from warming up your space. Rearrange your room to give your radiatorsthe space they need to work effectively.
Insulate your home: Save energy and money by ensuring your home is adequately insulated. Consider consulting a professional to assess your insulation needs and make recommendations.
Let the sun in: Take advantage of natural heat by opening curtains and blinds during the day to let sunlight warm up your interiors. Close them at night to retain the heat. Use thicker curtains or blinds for better insulation.
Add rugs: Carpets and rugs are great insulators and can make hard floors feel more comfortable. Place rugs in areas that need extra warmth to keep your feet cozy.
Draught-proof your home: Prevent draughts from letting the heat out by sealing cracks and gaps around windows and doors. Use gaffer tape, rolled-up towels, or draught excluders to block gaps and keep your home warm.
Use wood-burning fires: Consider a wood-burning stove or fireplace for an eco-friendly and cost-effective heating option. They can also add a touch of rustic charm and become a beautiful centrepiece in any room. Plus, you can heat only the rooms you need, rather than the whole house.
