The autumn and winter months require thick blankets, down jackets and warm sweaters, and often also warm thoughts of a home that warms us and is pleasantly warm. Comfort is brought to us by warm radiators, fireplaces, heating panels… But these often cause high costs, for which we are sometimes to blame ourselves. If you can’t afford to invest in a new facade or heating system, you can still manage to keep the extra percentage of heat in your home with a few tricks.

Check the seals

We usually lose heat through poorly insulated windows and doors, so first check that the windows and doors are well sealed. The easiest way to do this is to open a window and place a sheet of paper on the frame and close it. If you pull out the paper without difficulty, the seal is poor and you lose energy. Poor quality windows and doors can cause the room temperature to drop by as much as eight degrees Celsius. You can prevent this problem by placing blankets or specially designed pillows on the shelves. This will at least partially prevent heat leakage. Consider replacing windows and doors in the long run, but if you can’t afford it, invest in self-adhesive tapes that stick to the frames. For flexibility, we suggest choosing rubber bands that are installed over the entire contact surface.

Adjust the temperature

The daytime temperature in the apartment should be between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius, and the night temperature between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius. We advise you to invest in thermostats that you install on radiators and with which you regulate the temperature. The air temperature in individual rooms should be adjusted according to the purpose, so as not to impair the living comfort. In rooms that you use only occasionally, it should be lower, such as stairs, garages, bedroom. You do not need a high temperature in them. Even otherwise, a degree less in the space on the payment slip will show a seven percent lower price.
