Staying Safe and Warm at Home
Spring may technically be a few days away but it looks like Mother Nature and Jack Frost have something different to say. The vast snowfall may have left some people stuck at home, which isn’t a bad thing.
Here are some tips to make sure that your home winter getaway experience is as safe and warm as possible:
“Move your Sofa
It might feel great to have your favourite seat in front of the radiator, but it’s absorbing heat that could be warming your home. By moving it away from the radiator, hot air can circulate freely. The same goes for your curtains or drying clothes – keep them away from the radiator so that you can get the most out of your heat source.
Use your curtains
Heat from the sun is free so make the most of it. Open your curtains and let the sunlight in during the day to make use of this free heat. When it gets dark, shut your curtains, which act as another layer of insulation and keep warmth in your rooms. You should also make sure you don’t have any leaks or gaps so that the warm air can stay in and the cold air stays out – this also helps to reduce condensation. (Author: Robert Marchand)”
