Staying Warm Without A Furnace or Heater

The-heaters-make-for-a-warm-house Perhaps your heater or furnace is in need of cleaning and repair and no longer works well. Perhaps you’re cutting down on your energy bill, or you’re trying to cut back on your CO2 emissions. Perhaps you’re simply staying in a house or room that doesn’t have any heating system. With Autumn coming and Winter following suit, keeping warm is gonna be important, as it also affects your well-being.

Here is a couple of tips to do that, even with the absence of a heater.

1. Check all your windows and make sure that they are air tight when closed during the night, when the weather starts getting cold. If there are gaps, you need to have this repaired right away, using a plastic seal. If not, you can stuff towels or clothes in these gaps, so that the breeze can’t get in. But during the daytime, it’s okay to let a little draft come in and circulate in the room, as the cold can still be bearable.

2.  Change your curtains during these cold seasons. Use thick material to better protect your home from the cold. If not, you can also use shower curtains, as the material can block the air from coming in.  Similarly, set carpets and floor mats so that the cold on the floor can be diffused.

3. If there are rooms in the house that are empty, close them at all times, so that air do not circulate to the rooms where you’re at.

4. Lastly, light candles in the house, to produce some heat. Just be careful where you place this though, to avoid any accidents.
