Keep Your Home Cosy

Keep your home cosy this winter with the help of these tips and tricks.

1. Rugs and Blankets

Floors can account for as much as 10% of home heat loss. An affordable (and stylish!) way to mitigate this is through placing down rugs and blankets where practical.

2. Thermal Curtains

Up to 25% of heat loss in your home can come from uninsulated windows.
Insulated curtains can provide an extra barrier to radiant heat loss by adding insulation and reducing drafts.

3. Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a winter staple for keeping the chill at bay. Book yours in for a tune-up to help maximise efficiency, a well maintained unit will also run longer.

4. Draft-stoppers

Anywhere that lets in a draft allows precious heat to escape. Seal gaps under doors with draft-stoppers, they’ll prevent air from seeping in from the outside and into living and sleeping areas.
