Tips for a Warm, Sustainable Home During Winter Months


With the season changing from fall to winter, it’s time to start bundling up even more. The cold winter months always seem to empty wallets rather quickly. So in order to save some money and stay warm during these next few months, here are some tips to help you out!

-Use heavy curtains over windows to help stop heat from escaping
-Make sure home is well insulated and cracks/gaps are sealed up
-Watch the temperature on thermostat to make sure it’s working correctly
-Let sunlight in during the day
-Maintain your heater
-Wear layers, layers, and more layers (fuzzy socks, slippers, and blankets!)
-Exercise indoors to warm up
-Drink warm liquids (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hot cider, soup)
-Cook to warm up yourself and the kitchen (leave the oven open when you’re done with it)

Just by following these few tips, you’ll sure find that your payments will be lower and you’re being sustainable. Have a warm, fun winter!

Thanks for sharing these tips! One of the first things that I do every year is to get my heater checked out to make sure that it is running efficiently and will be in the upcoming winter months. I am not a big fan of the cold so making sure that my heater works is always a top priority for me!
