With the cost of living creeping up every day, more of us are beginning to opt out of having the heating on.
As oak framed building specialists, we’ve put together some investments we can help you with as well as some low-cost ideas for you to try, to try help you keep your home as warm as possible without having to blast the heating.
Curtains can do more than just keep the light out of rooms, they can also keep the heat in too. Investing in good quality, thick curtains will help keep even the coldest of rooms warm – and they look amazing.
A good rug goes a long way when it’s cold, especially on wooden and tiled floors. As well as bringing the design of a room together, a rug can help warm up your feet by insulating the floor and stopping heat loss.
Cracked and damaged window frames let in more than you realise, especially when it’s cold outside. Ensuring that your windows are secure and fitted properly and that the frames are crack-free will help keep the cold air out, and the warm air in.
