We’re in the middle of Winter now, so we wanted to share a few hacks to help you survive the colder months!

  • Reverse your ceiling fans to drive the warm air to the floor – keep them on the low speed
  • Take advantage of the warm sunlight by keeping curtains and blinds open all day, then closing them at night.
  • If you have wet shoes and boots after being outside, stuff them with newspaper to absorb the moisture and avoid mould
  • Prevent drafts under doors with door snakes or foam cut outs
  • Electric blankets are generally cheaper to run than a heater, so use an electric blanket to keep warm, rather than heating a whole room
  • Use the oven for cooking more, and as a bonus, it will help heat your kitchen!
  • Keep blankets in your living area so your family or guest can always use them to keep warm, rather than running a heater
  • Get out in the sunlight – it will improve your mood, help your body produce more vitamin D and make you feel so much more warm and vibrant in the middle of Winter!
