The Liveability Winter Checklist

Empower Yourself this Winter

Wear your winter woollies

It sounds so obvious but adding a layer or two to your clothing to help keep you warm is sometimes more effective than a heater. It’s especially important to keep your feet warm with soft indoor shoes or slippers. Perhaps consider keeping a small blanket or rug handy for over your knees when the temperature drops late at night.

Isolate the rooms you heat by closing doors

Only heat one or two rooms, those that you are using the most. Use door snakes to insulate the gap between the bottom of doors and the floor.

It’s really so simple but adding pelmets to the  top of your curtains will keep the hot air from escaping and reduce your heating bills
