3 ways to keep your home warm this winter


A couple of easy things that will add up to savings, and make your home more energy friendly during the cold months:

1. Turn your thermostat down by 1 degree, save energy and save up to 10% on your home heating bill.
2. Turn your water heater down to 60′C.
3. Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping.

Also sealing up space in between the window and sill or top of window frame. Or if there aren't spaces, arranging towels along the sill, because sometimes you can feel the wind blow through the windows!
