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
Change your thermostat
You can control your heat and save money simply by changing the set point on your thermostat to a lower temperature during the winter. 18 – 22°C should provide ample comfort during winter.
