How to keep warm this winter for next to nothing
Open your windows for a few minutes in the warmest part of the day to increase ventilation and allow moisture to escape m Close curtains as soon as the sun goes down m
Tempting as it is in winter, try not to dry your clothes inside to avoid increased damp
Block the chimney in any unused fireplaces m Install draught seals around doors and windows
Install DIY window insulation film as a temporary but very effective alternative to double-glazing
Thick, thermal-lined curtains over all windows and French doors, preferably with pelmets
Use thermostats and timers to control your heaters.
Avoid portable gas heaters. They pump moisture and noxious gases into your home, making it damp, unhealthy and more expensive to heat.
