How we can save on heating a home

I recently found an article about heating our apartments and some tips on how to save money. Since we are in the winter, any advice you may have will be of interest to you. We heat our households as much as 2/3 of all the months, but only a third are when we do not need heating. This means that heating represents the biggest expense that a single household has on its shoulders. No matter how we heat our home, what kind of energy we use and what are the ‘heat’ losses in our home, we can also save on heating.

No matter how pointless this ‘advice’ seems, it is very much in place. Many people have a habit of dressing in short, summer clothes even in the winter months, even though outdoor temperatures are well below zero. If you are one of these individuals but would like to save on heating, you might want to consider several layers of clothing. Of course, there is no talk of having to go in a coat in your own home, but the extra sweater may reach the heat you want without having to put the heat at maximum.

Tea or other hot beverages definitely helps to reach the warmth we may miss for a while

Are you among those who believe that it is best to heat only a certain place where we sleep or spend the most time? This may not make the most sense. Many people do this trick in the hope of lower heating costs, and in fact, they often have the opposite effect. It is advised that we heat all rooms approximately at the same rate as this will ensure that the heating system is at an optimal level at all times.

  1. We have gas central heating. But we save energy by not using it much. And we have woodstove fire, as well. We chop our own trees for firewood on our property. And in addition to that, we wear thick jackets, gloves, fleece blankets and woolen socks.

  2. I typically walk around wearing a sweater and sweats in order to avoid using my heater. If I get too cold I will wear a blanket around me, but now if that doesn’t work which it normally does then I will turn on my heater. I’ve done pretty good this winter. The assists goes to my job too because I’m there most of the time.
