Keeping warm during the colder months can be difficult, so here are some simple tips to help maximize the heat in your home.

  • Ensure radiators are not blocked by furniture so heat can circulate throughout the room
  • Use heating controls to heat rooms you are using when needed
  • Close your curtains when it’s dark and put them behind the radiators
  • Thicker or thermal curtains can help reduce heat loss
